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

Exploring migration at 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 programme for 2020 to 2021 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, starting during the year in which the museum marked its 10th birthday.

The museum celebrated its 10th birthday as the home of ideas worth fighting for in 2020.  Here Director Katy Ashton shares why, as the national museum of democracy, the museum’s collections and our work have never been as relevant or resonant as they are today.
