Go on a journey around the museum and explore six objects that tell a story about people who became refugees. This trail is aimed at families with children.

The United Nations Refugee Agency states that refugees are people who have fled war, violence, conflict or persecution and have crossed an international border to find safety in another country. Refugees often have had to flee with little more than the clothes on their back, leaving behind homes, possessions, jobs and loved ones. Walk this trail with your family or friends to celebrate the contribution of refugees to the United Kingdom and encourage better understanding between communities.

This event is free and part of V&A’s Refugee Week programme of events celebrating community and mutual care. Found out more about the history of the objects included in the trail at the V&A website.
