Bay Discovery Centre Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Historic Glenelg Town Hall takes pride of place as the home of the Bay Discovery Centre Museum, a social history museum interpreting the cultural heritage of Holdfast Bay.

Just hop on the famous Glenelg tram in the city at Victoria Square and at the end of the line you will find yourself in Moseley Square, across from Adelaide’s best seaside attraction – the Bay Discovery Centre.

In addition to fantastic multimedia exhibitions, you will also find a mezzanine gallery which features a program of visual art exhibitions supporting and promoting the work of South Australian artists.

The award winning volunteer team takes care of our front of house operations and will make you feel at home with a friendly smile and helpful information that only locals can provide.

Entry is via gold coin donation with extended hours during summer.
