Object stories

On a bright red background, the words 'Object stories' and a child's rollerskate held close to the camera by a woman

Compelling stories of cherished objects

Object Stories was a collaboration between the National Museum, ABC Open and Radio National; it was a great project, in many ways.

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.
