Museum Café & Shop

Following direction from the Federal Government and the South Australian Government, the state’s major cultural institutions – South Australian Museum, State Library of South Australia and Art Gallery of South Australia – will temporarily close to the public from 5.00pm today, 25 March 2020. This action is in the interests of public safety in response to COVID-19.

As the Museum Cafe and Shop are in the Museum building, they are also temporarily closed. The South Australian Museum aims to inspire in all people wonder and curiosity about life on Earth, and when we’re able to open again we’ll be here for you. In the interim there are many ways to stay connected with the Museum. We encourage you to visit our website and follow our social media for updates.

Museum Café

The Museum Café is a welcoming spot for grabbing a quick bite to eat or a coffee during your Museum visit.
