Lily @ the Immigration Museum

October 27, 2011 - Melbourne, Australia

Lily is checking out the posher class of travel available on steam ships pre jumbo jets.
Being immigrants we thought this museum was somewhat relevant (okay it was also up the road from our hotel!!).
Loads of happy, tragic, fascinating stories and exhibits about people arriving in Australia - a suprising amount of people in the 20th century did not choose to leave their home land and were in fact forced to come to Australia and a scary amount of those were kids (sent without any family). Also some interesting stuff from around the time when my family emigrated from UK to Australia on a big jumbo jet back in the 70's. Great when your life is part of a museum exhibition!
