This website uses words, photos and objects from people who spent time growing up in children’s homes, orphanages and other ‘care’ institutions.

These pages feature personal contributions to the National Museum of Australia’s Inside exhibition. They tell only a small part of each person’s story. They are presented alphabetically, by surname.

Inside blog

Read posts from people who contributed to the Inside exhibition, along with posts from other people who grew up in children's homes and institutions.
