Show Museum

Visit the new Show Museum, located on West Crescent opposite the Grandstand, and take a step back in time to explore the lives of our early farmers, gardeners, cooks, creators, animal lovers, and wine makers.

The Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society of South Australia is the organiser of South Australia largest event, the Royal Adelaide Show. An Agricultural Society was first formed in South Australia 180 years ago in 1839 and was based on the principals of the Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland. Just one year later they put on a Show to display the produce of the early colony.

From woodchopping to sheaf tossing, heavy horses to fluffy cats, and The Beatles to the Big Day Out – this Museum has stories to uncover and fun things for everyone.
