South Australian Museum

A trip to the South Australian Museum, on North Terrace in Adelaide. A few photographs of the Pacific Islander collection and the building, the war memorial and an abandoned building on North Terrace that has fallen “victim” to some street art.

The inside of the war memorial is impressive too. Love the old abandoned building, sad it isn’t being used now though.

there are a few of the really old decorative buildings lying empty on north terrace. Rather sad but I hope they don’t get knocked down and redeveloped – they add to the character of the street.
