This program is part of the Small Objects, Even Bigger Stories suite of staff led education sessions at the Immigration Museum.

Our stories is an interactive storytelling session which encourages children to explore community diversity through stories told with objects, artefacts and costumes.

To further enhance children’s understanding of themselves and the society they live in, the storytelling session is followed by a self-directed in gallery activity. Children work in small groups with teachers and accompanying adults taking a discovery trail through the museum galleries. 

The Little Red Suitcase option is available for Year 2 students.

The Big Brown Bag option is available for Year 3–4 students, who each receive their in-Museum activities in a take-home miniature suitcase.
