The National Motor Museum will re-open today – June 3

Car lovers can take a walk down memory lane again from today, with the National Motor Museum re-opening its doors to the public.

Located in Birdwood, South Australia the National Motor Museum is one of several venues in the state allowed to operate again under the state government’s Step 2 Roadmap to Recovery plan.
Museum director, Paul Rees, explained that several initiatives have been undertaken to ensure the safety of visitors – including capacity limits and extra cleaning services.

“We are keen to welcome visitors back to the National Motor Museum and to the Adelaide Hills,” Rees said. “The team have been working hard to prepare the museum and with a few modifications we think the visitor experience will be as good as it ever has been, but we are recommending that people plan ahead and book their places for the session times we will be offering.

“A day drive through the Adelaide Hills and a visit to the museum is an essential experience that many South Australians regularly enjoy and there’s no better time to get out and help our local economy than this long weekend.”

The National Motor Museum features a range of displays and activities that tell the story of cars, motorbikes and manufacturing in this country.

However, the National Motor Museum isn’t the only automotive showcase re-opening its doors today. The National Motor Racing Museum at Mount Panorama is also inviting the public back after its closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.
