South Australian Sports Museum


  Logo SA Sport Museum 01

The South Australian Sports Museum will be the state’s most comprehensive sports cultural institution, housing significant sports collections from a diverse range of sports.
We will make the State’s historical sports heritage accessible to all through exhibitions and public programs. It will be a place of fun and where all the family can learn and draw on the inspiration of our state’s greatest sportspeople.
Watch footage of our past and current champions in the theatrette, test your skills in the playzone and discover the amazing feats of our sporting legends in the Hall of Fame Gallery. Limited edition merchandise will allow you to remember and tell others the stories of our sporting best.

The creation of the South Australian Sports Museum will acknowledge the achievements of our sporting greats and bring their feats to life and inspire all South Australians.
