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.

Migration Museum Reviews
Australia has a number of museums about immigration and while this one was decent, I also thought it was far from the most compelling. more »

You'll need to really read every bit of information in there to appreciate it. So it turns out that South Australia (and other parts besides Sydney and Tasmania) was the "go to" for migration without looking like a convict. There's also plenty of information on the impact of colonization to the aboriginal society and how that was remedied over time.
This museum is a hidden treasure! It is so interesting. May be small in size but the displays are interesting and the staff and volunteers are very knowledgable and only too happy to answer questions. Spent an entire afternoon here...just taking it all in. Highly recommend.
