What is the scope of the Migration Museum’s collection?

The Migration Museum preserves, documents and interprets the cultural diversity of the people of South Australia. Through its programs of collecting, conservation and exhibitions, as well as its education programs, it aims to create greater awareness of the history and cultural traditions of the different groups who have settled in South Australia since 1836.

The Migration Museum collects objects, documents, costume and textiles which represent South Australia’s immigration and settlement history. The Museum also copies photographs and video material and records oral histories that relate to that history.

Objects that show the impact of settlement upon the Indigenous peoples of South Australia are also of interest to the Migration Museum.
