Glenelg Air Raid Shelter

Galleries, Museums and Collections Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Visit Glenelg’s historic Air Raid Shelter, built in 1942 to house war-time communications systems.

The shelter now houses exhibitions about local war history. You will enjoy the two new exhibitions- We Will Remember and Memory Cove. You may be able to help us by contributing information on locals who participated in the wars!

The shelter is open in the afternoon of the third Thursday of every month. It is also open on Anzac Day (25 April) and Armistice/ Remembrance Day (11 November).

Please note: There is a steep flight of steps leading to the exhibition area.
