Leviathan – an Astonishing History of Whales and Behind the Scenes: Bolivar Facility Tours
A unique tour opportunity presented by the South Australian Maritime Museum and the South Australian Museum.
Where does a museum store a whale skeleton? And how are the bones prepared for display? The South Australian Museum has been preparing skeletons for research and display since the 1880s, when this work was undertaken in the basement of the Museum.
These days, the Museum uses a purpose-built facility at Bolivar, north of Adelaide. It is the only one of its kind in Australia and one of the best equipped facilities for this work in the world. This facility has helped the Museum develop the largest and most comprehensive whale and dolphin collection in Australia.
This is your chance to visit one of the hidden gems of the South Australian Museum.
Visitors will tour the exhibition, Leviathan – an Astonishing History of Whales with Museum Curator, Dr Adam Paterson and then travel by private bus to tour the SA Museum's Bolivar facility with Senior Research Scientist, Dr Cath Kemper, and Collection Manager David Stemmer.
