World mammals gallery

The world mammals gallery is an old family favourite and one of the first most people see, as it is located on the ground floor.

Take a walk around the geographic regions of Eurasia, Tropical Asia, Africa and the Americas and learn about different mammals. 

Many of the specimens in this gallery are over 70 years old; Miss Siam, an Indian elephant, is over 100 years old. Her articulated skeleton is in the Museum's science centre, where many collection items are stored and research is undertaken. She lived at the Adelaide Zoo and died in 1904.
