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.
We’re getting ready to welcome you back on Tuesday 1 September. In the meantime read this new blog from our Director Katy Ashton about the contemporary collecting we’ve been doing whilst the museum has been closed.
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.
Protest Lab is part of the museum’s 2019 programme exploring the past, present and future of protest, marking 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre. Find out how Programme Officer Michael Powell and his team created the space and get an insight into which contemporary objects have been collected for display.
10 year old youth activist Lillia guest blogs for People’s History Museum (PHM) about what’s at stake and how she is standing up for climate justice ahead of the museum’s ‘There is no planet B’ creative disobedience day
