PHM is the national museum of democracy

Exploring migration at People's History Museum. Illustration by Danielle RhodaWe tell the story of the past, present and future of democracy in Britain. The right to vote, time to rest, fair pay – what has led to the freedoms we have today and what still needs to be done for a better future?

At PHM, 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.

Our 2021-22 programme puts a spotlight on the theme of Migration.
