Get into gear, strap the kids car seats in and hit the road friends; The History Trust of South Australia’s National Motor Museum will re-open its doors to visitors today at 10am.

It will be the first major South Australian Museum to open its doors.

This is part of the South Australian Governments Step 2 Roadmap to Recovery for easing COVID-19 restrictions.  With the health and safety the top priority, a number of procedures and measures have been implemented which are aligned with state and federal government guidelines to ensure visitors, museum officers, volunteers and the behind the scenes team remain safe.

Discover how motor vehicles have opened up our country, linking some of the most isolated communities in the world. From the stately to the absurd, from the hand-built to the mass-produced, see the vehicles people loved and loathed, thrashed and pampered, in the pursuit of their motoring dreams!

The South Australian Maritime Museum in Port Adelaide, and the Migration Museum in the city will follow, opening at 10am Friday 5 June 2020, in time for the June long weekend.
