Collections

The Migration Museum has a number of defined collection areas as set out in the Collections Management Policy of History SA. Most of these relate in some way to migration stories, cultural heritage, or the history of the current site of the Migration Museum. Physically, a large proportion of the collection is made up of textiles and documents. The Migration Museum also manages the State Weapons Collection and a section of the Historical Relics Collection on behalf of History SA.
