Object stories

Compelling stories of cherished objects

Object Stories was a collaboration between the National Museum, ABC Open and Radio National.

All up, around 600 stories were shared through the project – hearty thanks to everyone who participated. Here are our favourite stories from public contributors.

We're also very proud of the Museum's own stories.
