Migration has shaped modern Britain but in recent years there has been growing hostility towards migrants, fuelled by the media and government policy.
This exhibition explores the wider impact of negative media coverage and changing immigration controls, as well as highlighting campaigns to end the ‘hostile environment’ and its policies.
Including photographs, newspaper covers, campaign material and video, the exhibition also presents the moving personal experiences of migration told by the people affected, in their own words.
Suitable for all ages.
Please note this exhibition contains one newspaper image of a deceased child and descriptions of traumatic migration experiences that some visitors may find distressing.
Please note the museum is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
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.
