Welcome to the Army Museum of South Australia

Located at historic Keswick Barracks, the Army Museum of South Australia began in 1992 when a need to collect and preserve our military history was recognised. Built in 1912 the original stables building is now home to the museum. The original stables floor, now hidden under layers of cement, is designated for restoration, along with many other projects.

Volunteers, mainly ex-defence force members, operate the Museum with the assistance of a Defence Force Cadre staff. Volunteers attend the Museum on Mondays and Wednesdays to conduct repairs, restoration and renovations to the various exhibits and equipment on display for public viewing.

The Army Museum of South Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians of country throughout Australia. We recognise their continuing connection to land, sea and waters. We pay our respects to elders past and present.
