The South Australian Maritime Museum is custodian to one of the oldest nautical collections in Australia, a museum within a museum. The Museum of the Port Adelaide Institute was established in 1872 by local and international seafarers wanting a home for their collected treasures and curios. The collection was to become a cornerstone in the formation of South Australia’s cultural collections. In 1933 the material was reshaped as a specialist maritime collection and reborn as the Port Adelaide Nautical Museum.
