Love Exhibits

Love, love, love ..... is all you need. We all have love stories in one form or another. Some that end happily ever after, some that are sad, and some that are truly painful.

The Immigration Museum in partnership with Heide Museum of Modern Art has curated a new exhibition Love which combines visual art, historical and contemporary artefacts and personal reflections from the community and visitors. The museum tells many wonderful stories of migrants to Australia and the story of love is just one of these.

The exhibition explores love in all its joy, pain, heartbreak and glory. It highlights different types of connections between people, as well as all of the emotional experiences that we find in love.

The Immigration Museum provides visitors with other exhibitions too, centred around different themes but always connected to immigration, ethnicity, community, and connections between people. There is a gardening exhibition, holiday activities for children and an exhibition on what it's like to be Turkish in Australia. museum members are able to attend special masterclasses on chocolate making and silk scarf making using the Ebru method.

The museum is very easy to access from Flinders Street Station on foot or by tram. Besides being accessible for wheelchairs, service dogs and sight-impaired visitors, the Immigration Museum is also an autism-friendly museum. Please read further here.
