Ayers House Museum Ayers House Museum is located at the east end of Adelaide’s Cultural Avenue-North Terrace, on the southwest side of the Botanic Garden. This building was built in the late 19th century and was the residence of Sir Henry Ayers, Governor of South Australia (Uluru Ayers Rock in the Northern Territory was named after him). Today, half of the area is open to the public as a museum. Tourists can only visit with a guided tour to appreciate the rich life of the 19th century. Other parts have become private clubs for weddings and various events.
Ayers House is known as the best Victorian residence in Adelaide. This meticulously restored residence is one of the last great buildings of the 19th century preserved on North Street.
Sir Henry Ayres once built and decorated a magnificent family home, reflecting the luxurious lifestyle of a wealthy colonial society. For decades, this house has been the center of Ayres' family life and the entertainment venue for Adelaide's celebrities and political elites. In the 1860s, Mrs. Ayres sent a personal invitation to the upper class of Adelaide to participate in her exclusive ball. Now we are experiencing South Australia in the 19th century through the life of this seven-term governor.
Sir Henry Ayres bought the property here in 1871, and then hired the founder of Adelaide, William Wright, the chief designer of the colony of Adelaide, Kingston Kingston, to craft it. This is the big Victorian colonial house unfolding before us.
Sir Henry Ayres is an outstanding celebrity who has served as Governor of South Australia seven times and Cabinet Minister 11 times. He has been involved in many institutions in the state-no wonder he chose to live in this city!
Very good attraction, big and beautiful, suitable for people who like humanities and history, especially great,
Ayers House, the owner once used milk to wash the dance floor to achieve a smooth effect, a mansion! Now on display is the costume of Miss Fisher's Murder Misteries made by ABC, which is about an Australian female detective. The fun is that you can also take pictures in costumes.
I still feel very good, I can gain a lot of knowledge
The most impressive thing about Adelaide's second day was the Ayers House Museum, which was passing by wondering if you could spend $10 to see a house. It was worth the money. The residence of Sir Ayers, who served as Governor of South Australia from 1857 to 1893, is home to Victorian furniture and daily necessities. Half of the residences are now converted into restaurants and the other half are museums. I was the only customer on the tour, and a smiling docent told me a full hour of stories about each painting, the Ayers family's anecdotes, and Queen Victoria's childhood. In the basement also found that when I was a child, I also have meat grinder, candle mold, really cute!
