Who are we?

The Australian Museums and Galleries Association South Australia (SA) Branch is a network of people working and volunteering in galleries, museums, botanic gardens, historical societies, heritage sites and other organisations across the State. We welcome individuals who may not be working in the sector but are affiliated with it in other ways or people simply interested in what we do.  Members of the national association who are based in South Australia are automatically members of the SA Branch.

The Branch hosts a regular networking breakfast with a guest speaker on the first Friday of each month from April to December between 8am-9am at The Golden Wattle, Pirie Street, Adelaide, all are welcome to attend. We also host a number of events throughout the year to allow likeminded professionals and those interested in the sector to critically engage with local exhibitions and displays.
