Explore the objects
The National Museum uses objects to tell stories, to connect with others and make us think. We asked the Australian of the Year recipients from each state and territory to choose an object of personal significance to go display. Each object tells us something about their lives, aspirations and experiences.
This exhibition was on show at:
- Barr Smith Library, University of Adelaide, South Australia, 24 August to 8 November 2020
