The Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute, usually referred to simply as Tandanya, is an art museum located on Grenfell Street in Adelaide, South Australia. It specialises in promoting Indigenous Australian art, including visual art, music and storytelling.

The institute derives its name from "Tarndanya", the Kaurna Aboriginal people's name for the Adelaide Plains area, meaning "place of the Red Kangaroo". Established in 1989, it is the oldest Aboriginal-owned and run cultural centre in Australia.
