PHM is the national museum of democracy, telling the story of its development in Britain: past, present, and future.
On this blog we share posts from the PHM team and other experts, with behind the scenes stories, coverage of PHM's exhibitions, events, and Learning Programme, and highlights from the museum's unique collection.
This month PHM Learning Officer Liz Thorpe puts the spotlight on the Cliff Rowe painting Woman Looking Through a Microscope (1966), and shares activities to improve our wellbeing inspired by PHM’s wider collection of Cliff Rowe paintings.
People’s History Museum’s Researcher Dr Shirin Hirsch takes a closer look at the history of migrant workers documented in the museum’s collection.
PHM’s Programme Officer, Zofia Kufeldt puts the spotlight on a Grunwick strike poster from 1977.
Whilst the museum is closed we’re taking the time to explore some of the treasures within our collection and their relevance today. This month we’re putting the spotlight on the ‘There Is No Planet B’ placard.
Here’s a selection of events, activities, and resources to keep you connected with the museum – at home and online.
