About the program

Three separate programs are available and teachers can choose one or a combination to suit their students’ needs.


  • Museum Memories 1750-present
  • Museum tour highlighting migration stories throughout time.
  • Stories and Suitcases 1788- 1900*
  • Hands-on Workshop examining objects belonging to migrants from the period to help students understand their stories.
  • Documents and Dialogue 1901-present*
  • Hand-on workshop investigation, using oral histories and primary source documents to help student comprehension of migrants’ experiences.


The workshops are constructed to encourage students to delve into a real migrant’s experiences through objects, oral histories and primary source documents then think of a way to respectfully present the story to the other members of the group.
