2. Create a museum display

Imagine that you have been asked by the National Museum of Australia to select six objects for a digital exhibition covering key aspects of the story of postwar immigration to Australia.

Use the National Museum of Australia’s Collection Explorer to search for potential objects, or you can suggest objects from other sources that you believe would be effective in telling the story.
