School Visits

Update: 23 March 2020

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, public programs have been cancelled and the South Australian Maritime Museum is closed until further notice. Please continue to contact us with education inquiries and stay in touch to find out about our digital education programs as they develop.


The South Australian Maritime Museum is an ideal learning environment for students to explore South Australia’s unique history, our relationship with maritime culture and the marine environment. The museum offers exciting and varied exhibits in the historic Bond Store, an original lighthouse and Port River cruises onboard the Archie Badenoch.

Schools are able to participate in a variety of programs at the museum and within the Port Adelaide area. Programs cover a wide range of curriculum areas and year levels and provide hands-on and discovery based learning experiences.

Our Education Manager develops and delivers programs to support exhibitions and events and is available to support teachers with designing successful learning experiences for their students.
