The Melbourne Story exhibition is an exciting new resource for students exploring the history of Melbourne. The exhibition reveals key moments and major changes in Melbourne’s history, and focuses on seven key time periods. Iconic objects, immersive experiences and multimedia exhibits are combined with over 1,200 collection objects to recreate life in Melbourne from the 1830s to the present day.
The exhibition, together with its programs and resources, will add much to student learning in the Humanities – especially History, but also provides links with many of the other domains of the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). Students working at all levels will benefit from visiting the exhibition, with programs and resources currently available for students from Year 3 to Year 10.
