Visit Ayers House Museum
Ayers House is a prime example of colonial architecture and contains many important decorative features. Of major interest are the ornate painted finishes and examples of trompe l'oeil on the walls and ceilings of all rooms, the large reception rooms designed for entertaining and the external symmetry of the house with its two matching bow windows.
Today, Ayers House Museum is managed by the National Trust of South Australia. It houses a large collection of antique furniture, silver, paintings and costume, mostly dating from the nineteenth century, and corresponding to the period of Henry Ayers' occupancy of the house.
Disabled facilities are ground floor access only.
Ayers House Museum is located on Adelaide's main cultural boulevard, North Terrace (No. 288) and is situated within the thriving East End precinct of the CBD. The Museum is easily reached either on foot or by bus, including the free City Loop service which stops directly at the front of the property.
