Enjoy this tour of the heritage-listed building that once housed the original fleet of local trams, and is now the State Herbarium

The heritage-listed Tram Barn A was once part of a sprawling complex which housed the original fleet of Adelaide trams.

Now used as the State Herbarium, it is home to over one million plant specimens instead.

Learn about its original use as part of the East End's transport hub to its refurbishment as the State Herbarium of South Australia.

Discover the cultural and natural history of the building, while becoming familiar with the Herbarium's current role in plant science and conservation.

This event is part of the History Festival program.
