Visit the Adelaide Holocaust Museum

Our permanent exhibition traces the history of the Holocaust.

We encourage critical thinking around themes that remain relevant to issues in contemporary society such as positive citizenship, hate-speak, antisemitism, racism, and acts of terror.

Due to the sensitive nature of the content in the Holocaust exhibition, we recommend that children under 13 years of age are accompanied by an adult at all times.

Book your visit

To visit the museum on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, pre-booking is essential as we will only be offering private viewings. The museum will be open on Sundays as usual.

Health and safety

The museum is open with restrictions in place to ensure everybody has a safe and comfortable visit. If you are planning to visit, please ensure you are adhering to the guidelines.

To comply with contact tracing, please ensure you scan the QR code for a COVID Safe Check-In on arrival or complete the contact form.  

We ask that all visitors 12 years and over comply with the current restrictions which mandate the wearing of masks in shared indoor public places. If you forget your mask, just ask our front desk for one.

In line with Government advice and our current COVID Safe Plan, capacity restrictions in all public areas have new capacity limits and capacities are sign posted at the entrance of each gallery. Patrons are encouraged to distance appropriately wherever possible. 

Please use the hand-sanitiser provided on arrival. Maintain physical distancing of 1.5 metres from others at all times and observe capacity limits for each gallery space. There are floor markings and signage to help visitors maintain safe distances. 

We’ve provided hand sanitiser at the museum entry and at various places throughout the building for your use and we’re cleaning frequently with hospital-grade disinfectants.

At this time we ask you to consider the wellbeing of others and to not visit if you’re unwell, have experienced cold or flu symptoms in the last 14 days, or have returned from overseas in the last 14 days.
