Time Out says

Named after its original owner Sir Henry Ayers, a 19th-century politician, financier and premier of South Australia, this stunning house is famous for being the last of the grand mansions that once littered Adelaide’s North Terrace boulevard. 

Located in Adelaide’s East End, this fine Victorian-era home is strikingly restored in all its glory. You'll be able to see decorative fixings including trompe l’oeil on walls and ceilings, the ornate State Dining Room and the entire premises decorated with beautiful antique furniture. 

The museum is open Saturdays and Sundays and hosts regular events, exhibitions and a series of family-friendly programming. A guided tour is probably the best way to experience the venue, as you’ll get a great history lesson about the home and learn how it’s been cared for all these years.
