Welcome to the Army Museum of South Australia

The Army Museum of South Australia acknowledges and respects traditional owners of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains, and pays respect to Elders past and present.

Located at historic Keswick Barracks on ANZAC Highway, the Army Museum of South Australia (AMOSA) was established in 1992 when a need to collect and preserve our military history was recognised.

Built in 1912, what was originally a stables building is now home to the Museum galleries.

Several other buildings around the base also support the Museum, offering facilities such as general storage, light engineering, library and archival capacity.

Volunteers, some but by no means all ex-Defence Force serving members, provide most of the Museum workforce under the overall direction and supervision of an Australian Army uniformed component answering to the Army History Unit.

Most volunteers attend the Museum on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays but occasionally at other times by arrangement and if the unit is particularly busy.

Open to the General Public, we welcome your visit. The AMOSA museum is also particularly popular for school excursions and social club visits, with private tour sessions < organised by arrangement >
