The History Trust of South Australia and its museums and galleries, including the Migration Museum, the National Motor Museum, the South Australian Maritime Museum and the Centre for Democracy, is committed to keeping our visitors, our people and our volunteers safe.

We have have implemented procedures and aligned with SA Health advice to ensure our museums and galleries remain COVIDSafe. All of our team members have been trained in both our site-specific COVIDSafe Plan and processes, along with designated COVID Marshals.

We will continue to monitor SA Health advice and provide updates through our dedicated COVID-19 information page.

Guided by expert health advice and in accordance with South Australian Government recommendations and requirements, we have developed COVIDSafe plans for each of our locations.

Some of the key initiatives include:

  • Increased cleaning with special attention to frequent touch points
  • Development of recommended route through the museum to assist with flow
  • Establishment of maximum visitor capacity for our galleries
  • Installation of numerous hygiene stations providing access to hand sanitiser.

How you can help us

  • If you have cold or flu symptoms seek testing and stay home until you are well.
  • Wash your hands often and make use of the hand sanitiser stations located throughout the museum
  • Observe social distancing and maximum gallery capacities at all times
  • Help keep your family and community safe by downloading the Australian Government COVIDSafe app.

The History Trust and its museums and galleries will provide updates on any changes through our website and social media channels.
