Fun & learning

The South Australian Museum is a place for lifelong learning and inspiration. Learning is how we make sense of our world.

Our team in the Discovery Centre on level one knows all about our exhibits and can even help identify any specimens you bring in. If you do manage to stump them with a particularly tricky question, they have our expert scientists to call on to help find the answer.

Students & schools

You can access the South Australian Museum's resources for your school.

All school visits to the Museum must be booked in advance. Overcrowding in galleries can be a problem at peak times and reduces enjoyment and educational benefits for both school groups and other visitors. To ensure fairness, we require all bookings requests to be made by email using this form and, where possible, please plan to book at least two weeks in advance.

Teaching resources

Borrow artefacts or specimens in a 'discovery case' from the Museum.

We've got some handy resources to inspire your students on their learning journey. Discovery cases provide them with a hands on experience, allowing them to remove and touch specimens.

Earth sciences education

We are pleased to offer a range of upcoming learning opportunities for students and educators as part of a new partnership with the Department for Energy and Mining.

Watch out for new Earth and Environmental Sciences resources and programs aligned with the Australian Curriculum for learning at the South Australian Museum and beyond.
