Due to the COVID-19 virus the Museum is closed. The wellbeing of our community, visitors, volunteers and staff is our priority, so we have made the decision to close the museum for the next few weeks.
If you need information on COVID-19 visit health.gov.au or call 1800 020 080.
Think motoring history, motorcycles, vintage, classic, muscle and new cars on show for all to see and enjoy.
The museum is bringing people together, creating a stronger community and developing more tourism destinations in town.
Strathalbyn has long been a destination for motoring groups, being centrally located between Adelaide, Victor Harbor, Murray Bridge and “The Bend” at Tailem Bend. Since the town was an established motoring destination the Strathalbyn Tourism Association decided a motoring museum that was dedicated to showcasing the motoring history of the area was a good idea.
Strathalbyn has numerous antique shops, bric-a-brac outlets, op-shops and second-hand book stores.
You’ll find that most antique stores are concentrated in High Street, with other second-hand shopping opportunities located in the side streets off Dawson Street. The quality and variety of the antiques in Strathalbyn even brought Bargain Hunt Australia and Australian Pickers to film in Strathalbyn.
Strathalbyn’s famous Antiques and Collectables Fair is scheduled on the weekend of the 15 and 16 August 2020. A decision on whether it goes ahead will be made closer to the date.
