History Trust of South Australia
The History Trust of South Australia operates three museums – the Migration Museum, the National Motor Museum and the South Australian Maritime Museum and The Centre of Democracy in collaboration with the State Library of South Australia. The History Trust is caretaker of the State’s social history collections and ensures current and future generations can enjoy their state’s rich and fascinating past in ways that are relevant today.
The History Trust supports South Australia’s history network of committed volunteer associations and local history specialists through a Community Museums Program, digital capacity building programs and annual grant funds for research and writing to promote the value of history, collections and our place in the world. The History Trust presents the annual open access festival South Australia’s History Festival – a statewide celebration of community history, collections and heritage. Through its museums, the History Trust present many other community events such as the Bay to Birdwood vintage car run and other festivals and celebrations on South Australia’s cultural calendar.
