Where are we going today?

Atmospheric and highly informative, The Bengilla Migrant Experience shares the daily life of those seeking it's accommodations during repopulation after WW2. Breaking out for new territory is not a theme which ages and the sympathetic collections and exhibits tell a moving story of other families far from home and striving for a new beginning.

Kids can interact with many of the fascinating exhibitions and there is a great deal to be learned here for all ages.
