Learn about European immigration and settlement of South Australia at Migration Museum, a social history museum located in what was once the city’s destitute asylum. Between 1850 and 1918 the building housed deserted and destitute men, women, and children, but today maintains both permanent and rotating exhibitions. Featuring nine modern galleries, the museum showcases the history and culture of native peoples before European colonization, as well as the impact immigration had on the country starting with the 19th century. The oldest museum of its kind in Australia, this site aims to promote multiculturalism and tolerance through the preservation and understanding of South Australia’s diverse cultures.

移民の国オーストラリアならではの博物館でした。先住民は居たのですが、現在のオーストラリア人は主に移民してきた人達が主体になっているので、このような形の施設があるみたいでした。ドネーション方式なので教会の寄付と同じような感じでした。 more »It was a Museum of immigration countries Australia's. That indigenous people, Australia's current is mainly people who emigrated mainly because facilities like this seem to be a. It was a similar feel to church donation donation method.
The migration museum does a really good job at showing the history of where immigrants have come from during different periods of time, how our policies have changed towards immigrants over the years, and how the cultures brought into Australia influenced our nation to make it the multicultural society it is today. Great effort was made to set this museum up, and the entry fee is small. Toilet facilities are available.
This a very insightful point of attraction for people from all walks of life as the exhibits detail many reasons for immigration. The souvenirs section touches on objects that incite feelings of nostalgia while the latter part of the museum goes through the period of colonisation and beyond. I also thoroughly enjoyed the outer building that goes through the history of the buildings when they used to be lying in homes for women young and old. Children will love the interactive displays while adults immerse themselves in this history of migration both locally and domestically.
