Migration Museum

Telling the stories of the migrants who came from all over the world to make South Australia their home, the Migration Museum provides fascinating insight into Adelaide’s rich history and cultural heritage. With respect for the indigenous people of this region, the museum also illustrates the impact of immigration on native Australians.

History of the Migration Museum
The museum is housed in buildings that once belonged to Adelaide’s Destitute Asylum, which provided government welfare to children and expectant mothers from 1878 until the early 20th century. The exhibition “In this Place” tells the story of the former inhabitants, including 1,678 babies who were born in its rooms.
