COVID-19 Temporary closure

Many of you will be aware that South Australia is implementing a significant response to a recent outbreak of COVID-19.

This means that we will be closing our museums this afternoon and for the next six days from midnight 18 November 2020, in accordance with the SA Government Emergency Management Declaration. This includes all History Trust museums and galleries including the Migration Museum, the National Motor Museum, the SA Maritime Museum and the Centre of Democracy and our headquarters located at the Torrens Parade Ground. 

We will continue to monitor the situation and follow SA Health and SA Government advice. The health and safety of our teams, visitors and volunteers remains our priority. You can read more about the History Trust’s COVIDSafe approach here.

We are confident that together we can get on top of this.

There is plenty of wonderful SA history available to see and explore online, particularly through our websites.

We will continue to provide updates on any changes through our website and social media channels. If you are seeking information on COVID-19, visit www.health.gov.au or call the Australian Government’s Department of Health Coronavirus Information Line on 1800 020 080.

In the meantime, we ask our South Australian friends to stay home and stay safe.
