Designed for all visitors, but particularly with families in mind, you are challenged to step into the shoes of a refugee, asylum seeker or economic migrant. Just as in real life the choice is not yours to make, with your fate determined in this case by the spin of a wheel. The twists and turns are the real stories and experiences of those whose footsteps you are following and your passport includes activities to help you further explore the narratives revealed.
This free interactive activity starts outside Main Gallery One and is aimed for children aged 9+ to follow with their families.
Please check museum opening times.
Please note the animations in the galleries contain descriptions of traumatic migration experiences that some visitors may find distressing. Stories covered include experiences of modern day slavery, seeking asylum on the basis of sexuality, and lived experience of a refugee camp and the resettlement process.
Part of PHM’s programme exploring migration, co-created by a Community Programme Team made up of people whose lives have been shaped by migration.
