Learn about the lives, aspirations and stories of extraordinary Australians through our annual exhibition of objects of personal significance chosen by Australian of the Year recipients from each state and territory.
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 has been on show at:
- National Museum of Australia, Canberra, 17 December 2014 to 28 February 2015
- Australian Museum in Sydney, New South Wales, 4 August to 29 November 2015
