• Mary MacKillop Museum

    The Mary Mackillop Museum is located 15 minutes from Adelaide city and is on the site where St Mary MacKillop lived for eleven years from 1872-1883.

This unique museum celebrates the life and legacy of this extraordinary pioneering educator and social reformer who became Australia’s first Saint, Mary Mackillop, and offers visitors an engaging and inspiring experience. The new contemporary design incorporates digital and interactive displays, sound bites and historical artefacts.

The new gift shop offers visitors an opportunity to browse and discover meaningful mementoes of their visit. A new cafe, which will offer both indoor and out-door dining, is also scheduled to open soon.

The redeveloped  MMK Museum in Kensington reopened on 3 December 2019.  This redevelopment project was launched in 2016 when the Sisters of St Joseph celebrated the Sesquicentenary of their foundation.

The Museum will be the starting point for a local, self guided Mary MacKillop (MMK) Kensington-Norwood Walking Trail, scheduled for 2020.
