Jacob Baldwin's life-long advocacy for the disabled first came to public attention when he embarked on a four-year-long journey around Australia in his wheelchair.
Mr Baldwin, who was disabled at birth when a motor nerve was severed during a long labour, died from cancer in 2010 at the age of 59.
During his lifetime he said he would like to see a museum celebrating disability set up, and that dream has, at least partly, been realised.
His wheelchair has gone on show at the National Museum of Australia (NMA) in Canberra, alongside other mementos from the trip.
