Enjoy a Virtual Tour Mary MacKillop Museum!

Adelaide’s newest museum tells the story of Mary MacKillop, Australia’s first canonised saint: pioneering educator, social reformer—now a cultural icon—and those who have followed her since 1866.

Mary MacKillop Museum:

  • is located at Mary MacKillop Precinct, Kensington, where Mary lived from 1872-1883.
  • offers an interactive visitor experience through the use of sound pens, touch screens and other contemporary storytelling approaches
  • is disabled-friendly
  • provides translated texts of exhibits in three languages: Italian, Vietnamese and Chinese
  • has an exciting Gift Shop with reasonably-priced memorabilia and religious objects,  plus beautiful gifts and cards for special occasions and milestones
  • has an enthusiastic band of volunteers who can’t wait for the COVID-19 restrictions to be lifted so that they can come back and welcome visitors
  • has a new space for a café, which will be opened before the end of the year (opening date to be announced soon!)
  • is the starting and end point for the proposed local Kensington-Norwood self-guided Mary MacKillop Walk.  This is a work-in-progress, and, hopefully, will be launched  by the end of 2020.  Watch this space!
