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 and events, and highlights from the museum's unique collection.
When People’s History Museum reopened back in May 2021 visitors were invited to explore the exhibition My Home is Not My Home, which gave a unique and intimate insight into the hidden world of domestic work and included a powerful video installation. A new film about the project has premiered for International Women’s Day 2022 on the museum’s YouTube channel. We caught up with one of the creators, Marissa Begonia, the founding member and director of The Voice of Domestic Workers (VODW) to tell us more.
On the anniversary of the 1848 Chartist mass meeting on Kennington Common, London, People’s History Museum’s (PHM) Researcher Dr Shirin Hirsch explores the life of PHM Radical William Cuffay – a ‘scion’ of Africa’s oppressed race – and reveals a precious, rare and poetic treasure of Cuffay’s from the museum’s collection.
