A must see. A wonderful historical house in the centre of Adelaide. Take a guided tour to learn the history. Staff were friendly to all ages on the tour. Even young children were made part of the tour.

Wonderful costumes but of course also the exhibition showed how they made these beautiful couture dresses. The Ayers House was a great place to visit even without the exhibition, a great example of Adelaides old world charm and architecture.
