South Australian Museum reviews
Nice free museum with lots of things to see (for kids and grownups alike) and spend a few nice hours (especially if it’s raining outside)

We did the Shadow Initiation museum game. Absolutely fabulous... The best use of tech like that I've ever come across. Is almost impossible to think how you could design a better hours entertainment for a family really... And not at all expensive. Super well done SA museum! (We did it again three years later - still great and apparently a new version is just about to launch!)
A great spot to stop off in Adelaide. There are some great exhibits and although an old space, was clean and educational. It is a lot smaller than many I have been to, found the layout quite confusing and some of the areas were tiny - such as the Egyptian zone, but overall a good place and good trip out with the kids.
