We are Closed for Renovations

The museum is closed for renovations from 12 April 2024. When we re-open in mid-2025, visitors will have access to two floors of historic Fennescey House, including double the current exhibition space, a purpose-built education area and greatly improved accessibility. The top floor will transform into a modern space for researchers to work and meet.

While we may be shutting the doors, the Adelaide Holocaust Museum and delivery of its vision will continue. Our Education Program will be delivered at an alternative location and through an incursion model.

Our permanent exhibition traces the history of the Holocaust.

The Adelaide Holocaust Museum is a museum of history with a contemporary mission. 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.
