PHM is the national museum of democracy, telling the story of its development in Britain: past, present, and future. On this blog we share behind the scenes stories, coverage of our exhibitions, events, Learning Programme and highlights from our unique collection.
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.
