COVID-19 Statement

If you are seeking information on COVID-19, visit or call the Australian Government Department of Health Coronavirus Information Line on 1800 020 080.

Effective 1 March 2021

We have re-opened our gallery spaces and conducting tours by appointment. We are also progressively supporting community events with our historical vehicles.

The safety and well-being of our visitors, volunteers and staff continues to be our top priority and so, in line with the South Australian Government’s advice, we have taken and will continue to take the necessary steps to minimise any potential impact of COVID-19 at our venues. With this in mind we have implemented strong cleaning, sanitation, control, capacity monitoring and contact tracing measures and deployed Covid Marshals.

We ask that you do not visit our museum if you’re unwell, have experienced cold or flu symptoms in the last 14 days, or have returned from overseas in the last 14 days. Please comply with mandatory contact tracing measures in place at our museum and ensure you scan the QR code for a COVID Safe Check-In on arrival.

Effective 25 November 2021

Following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions and the Emergency Management (SA Police Workers Vaccination) (COVID-19) Direction of 27 October 2021, the South Australian Police Historical Society (SAPHS) Executive has made the decision to make its museum galleries and support areas fully vaccinated venues.

Effective 25 November, all persons aged 16+ entering SAPHS venues for any reasons, including tours, will need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with a vaccine approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration. Visitors will need to:

  • Show their COVID-19 Digital Certificate on their smart device,
  • Provide personal photo identification and printed immunization certificate, or
  • Provide an official medical exemption.
