Mary MacKillop Museum


Adelaide’s Newest Museum is now open!

Come and join us for a tour of the new look Mary MacKillop Museum – it tells the story of Australia’s first canonised saint and the heroic women who have followed her since 1866.

Located in the heart of Kensington, it sits on the grounds of the first permanent headquarters of the Josephite sisters, including the historic chapel and gardens.

The Museum offers an interactive, ‘hands-on’ experience – using audio and visual storytelling approaches to engage and inspire.

It also includes a boutique gift shop!
