Yankalilla District Historical Museum Inc

Yankalilla District Historical Museum Inc

The museum is designed to reflect the industries and lifestyle of the district since settlement. The buildings, constructed to house machinery, were architecturally designed to resemble farm buildings and have all been built by voluntary labour from local community groups. The main shed displays pictures and machinery related to specific industries e.g. wool, dairy and mining. Aspects of lifestyle are captured in a two room cottage, nursery, and clothing display. A recent acquisition is a small 100 year old church moved to the grounds from its original site.
