As per the rest of the Museum, the Shop and Café will have capacity limits and social distancing and hygiene guidance in place.
The Museum’s overall capacity, inclusive of the Shop, is currently limited to 1 person per 2 sqm at any one time.
The Café has an exemption to the Museum’s 1 person per 2 sqm person capacity, so it can now permit 41 people can sit outside and 24 people can sit inside. Entry and exit to the Café is via the Café terrace. If you visit the Café and require toilet access you will have to enter the Museum – the interior door between the Café and the Museum will have bollards in place at all times. Pram parking is available at the interior entrance to the Café.
Hand sanitiser will be available in all areas and we have removed 'tester' stock from our Shop shelves and shared use sugar, pepper and salt dispensers from the Café. For a contactless visit, we kindly request payment by card rather than cash and we are not able to accept keep cups.
The South Australian Museum is one of Adelaide’s most iconic landmarks, sparking curiosity and wonder in the natural world. Our Café offers an imaginative menu of locally sourced ingredients and house-made products, designed to showcase South Australia’s finest produce.
