Ayers House Museum is a colonial mansion named after its former owner Sir Henry Ayers, a seven times premier of South Australia during the nineteenth century. Visitors can experience the social history of the period during a guided tour of the house and see a collection of historic costume, silver, artwork and furniture as well as changing exhibitions.
Architecturally, the house contains important decorative painted finishes on internal walls and ceilings that extend to every room, reflecting the differing function of each room. The house is thought to have been designed by George Strickland Kingston and was built over a period of several years.
Ayers House Museum is also available for Weddings and Functions.
A property of the National Trust of South Australia, Ayers House Museum is located in the thriving East End district of Adelaide’s central business district and is not to be missed.
