The Melbourne Story exhibition presents a snapshot of the history of Melbourne from early contact between white settlers and local Indigenous peoples.

The historical stories, artefacts, soundscapes, images and interactive components that make up the exhibition provide students with a unique opportunity to look at the unfolding Melbourne story through the eyes of its citizens: rich and poor; Indigenous peoples, settlers, immigrants and refugees; young and old; those who found “the good life”, and those who struggled to survive.

The Melbourne Story resources provide teachers with exhibition notes, a range of activities for use in different subject disciplines (History, Geography, Economics, Social Education) and links to extension activities.
