“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

Nice little historical museum of both the seaside and of the foundation of South Australia as a British colony. Some interesting memorabilia, including details of early 20th century bathing rules (which forbade topless bathing, even amongst men!). Nice detail of the founding of the colony and the City of Adelaide. Certainly worth a browse, and helped by lovely local volunteers.

“well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

The place shows the history of the area and the history of swim wear and the beach life going back many years , it free to enter but a contribution never goes a miss. the position is in its self worth going to at the end of the Glenelg tram. The exhibits are also well worth seeing in the vry picturesque seaside town.
