Adelaide Arcade now has its very own Museum showcasing its colourful history. Set up on the balcony level of Gay’s Arcade, there are artefacts, photographs, newspaper clippings, trinkets and even an accordian that plays the official ‘Adelaide Arcade Polka’!
There are stories, surprising facts and figures, pictures and articles from years gone by and colourful artefacts from the construction period. A wonderful way to start your Adelaide Arcade experience is by wandering through the Museum and learning more about the era when the Arcade was built.
Start at the top of the stairs, leading up from Gay’s Arcade and follow the pictures and stories up to the first floor.
The Museum adds to the charm and history of the Arcade and is open during the Arcade shopping hours. There is no charge to wander through – just spend some time!
