Description 

The stories of how museums collect objects can be just as interesting as the objects themselves. From the highlands of Papua New Guinea to the early missionary days on Groote Eylandt, fascinating tales can be drawn from the histories of collecting through the diverse range of pipes over the past fifty years.
