    Coronavirus update: 17 June 2020

    People’s History Museum (PHM) has been closed to the public since March 2020, though our teams have remained busy planning, creating, amplifying and connecting with communities.? We are also working towards a time when it will be safe to open the museum doors again to visitors, and will share further news when we are able to.

    Public events usually taking place at the museum have found a new life online, including those focused on PHM’s headline theme for 2020; migration.? Discover Ideas Worth Exploring at home and online, for a range of activities you can participate in remotely.

    In the last few weeks we’ve stood in solidarity with people around the world united behind the call for change led by #BlackLivesMatter.? One of our first actions has been to actively collect materials from the anti-racism events and protests taking place locally, nationally and internationally.

    The museum has also started documenting and collecting around some of the campaigns in response to the Covid-19 pandemic; migrant health workers and the NHS, the experiences of disabled people, PPE shortages, and the role of key workers.

    If you would like to contribute to the collection of the national museum of democracy in any of these areas you can contact:?collections@.

    Look out for updates on this website, sign up to our regular e-newsletter, subscribe to the?blog, and find us on Twitter?@PHMMcr, Facebook?@PHMMcr, and Instagram?@phmmcr.? The work and role of PHM has never felt more important, so if you are able to?add your support?it would be greatly appreciated.? We look forward to welcoming you to the home of ideas worth fighting for when we are back open.

    PHM is the national museum of democracy, telling the story of its development in Britain: past, present, and future.

    Exploring migration @ People's History Museum. Illustration by Danielle RhodaThe museum provides opportunities for all people to learn about, be inspired by and get involved in ideas worth fighting for; ideas such as equality, social justice, co-operation, and a fair world for all.

    PHM’s year long programme for 2020 explores migration, co-created by a Community Programme Team made up of people whose lives have been shaped by migration.

    This is PHM’s most ambitious programme ever and takes place during the year in which it also marks its own 10th birthday.
