Millicent National Trust Living History Museum
The Millicent National Trust Living History Museum is one of South Australia's largest and best local museums. It captures the stories of the Limestone Coast brilliantly.
The museum's extensive layout leads you from the Aboriginal history and culture of the Limestone Coast to the perils of the sea. It takes in a fine collection of horse drawn carriages and wagons; tells the story of early Millicent days; and explains how the swamps surrounding the town were drained. There are very small items: a hexagonal fabric piece in a quilt from one of Queen Victoria's gowns, an Emu egg football cup and a set of scales has weighed nearly every baby born in Millicent.
The museum houses the town's Visitor Information Centre and a Craft Gallery. This showpiece museum was one of the first two museums in South Australia to receive full accreditation from the History Trust of South Australia.
