Centre of Democracy temporary closure

The Centre of Democracy, an interactive gallery managed by the History Trust of South Australia in collaboration with the State Library of South Australia, has closed temporarily.

The Centre, located in the Institute Building on the corner of North Terrace and Kintore Avenue, was visited recently by a group from a school connected with a COVID-19 case.

Out of an abundance of caution, a decision was made to close the Centre to the public, while we investigated the connection, and to allow a precautionary deep clean of the gallery space.

At the conclusion of our investigation, we are pleased to be able to confirm that the Centre was not exposed to COVID, and the site will not be considered as a contact location.

The Centre will remain closed temporarily and updates will be made via our website and social media channels.
