ADELAIDE ATTRACTIONS

2010 has finally kicked off. Better late than never. Firstly its festival time in Adelaide and that means more openings than you can shake a stick at. But to take a slight diversion … there is an old poster from the 1930s (ish) which says “when in Adelaide visit the museum”. 70 years later this is excellent advice because the SA museum has at least two collections that are among (if not the) best in the world. The Australian Aboriginal Cultures Gallery and the Pacific Cultures galleries are mind bogglers. Very nicely done up for modern times the museum retains some of the ambience of its bygone era and its a beautiful thing.
