The Migration Museum
Staff at Adelaide’s Migration Museum have been searching through the collection to bring out treasures relating to migrants from Greece, Ukraine and Molfetta. We are excited about being part of The Travelling Table, and looking forward to attending the dinners and sharing some of the objects and photographs from the collection. Most of all we are looking forward to meeting people and hearing the migration stories of individuals, families and communities, and learning more about what makes South Australia’s cultural diversity work.
The Migration Museum was established in 1986, the first museum in the world to take migration as its subject. Over the last three decades it has worked with hundreds of communities and thousands of individuals to document and share the stories of South Australians through exhibitions, events, education and other public programs. The Migration Museum is a museum of the History Trust of South Australia, and the Migration Museum collection is part of the State History Collection, held on behalf of all South Australians.
Below is a sample of some of the wonderful treasures The Migration Museum have found in their archives for display at The Travelling Table 2018!
