Great idea to have a museum in a shopping centre. It might encourage people to enter who would usually not go into a museum. The museum is interesting and informative and well worth a visit if you..... more »
I found it very disappointing. First, it was difficult to find. There are no signs on the way, which is a pity. But I also found the layout confusing. There are quite a few doors, and it was not clear to me where to go and where to avoid. The exhibitions are mainly an array of anecdotes of migrants. I did not find this enticing. I could not find any figures on migrant numbers or where they settle. Also I would have liked to know more about the general experiences of migrants. Some presumably come without knowing anyone one here. That could be difficult, yet I did not get much of a sense of that. Others come to a group already here and that could also be difficult. There are lots of this about the migration process that people have in common, yet I left the exhibition without getting any sense of that. The best photographs were the big ones on the stairs outside! I would have liked a clearer focus - some of the exhibits I had no idea why they were there or what relevance they had to migration. I will not be going back.
This is a brilliant place to visit. For anyone who ever was, or knew someone who was, or is an immigrant, or who is simply interested in the stories of people who have had to leave their country of birth, it is a must. The current exhibition Room to Breathe is amazingly curated..
