People’s History Museum is the home of ideas worth fighting for.
We want a fairer society in which people’s voices and actions make a difference. Will you help us?
We hope that learning about people’s activism at People’s History Museum inspires you to take action on the issues you care about.
Our exhibitions are free to visit and we want to make sure everyone can access them.
We also offer visits to schools and work hard to make sure that our local community benefits too, with events and learning opportunities designed around their needs.
We can only offer all this thanks to people like you, who make donations to support us. If you want to help us do even more, why not join other visitors and make a donation today?
