Trobriand Island Trading Vessel

This museum, which has a huge whale skeleton in the front window, is one of Adelaide's landmarks.  The museum contains five floors of natural and cultural history with particular emphasis on the fossils, animals and minerals of South Australia.  Although it's primarily a natural history museum it also has a good collection of Aboriginal artifacts, including an Aboriginal Dreamtime exhibition.
