Challenging perceptions of Communism in Britain and beyond

What would a Communist Britain look like?  Uncovering new archive collections on leading British Communists, this Arts & Humanities Research Council funded project with the University of Manchester will include two exhibitions, a day school and an international conference.  The project will provide an insight into how Communists tried to transform civil society through the media, education, science and culture, and how they envisaged a socialist Britain may look.

The EURO Tunnel, In or Out?

Confused between your Council and your Commission?  PHM has commissioned a graphic installation that explores all things EU.  The EURO Tunnel is a trip into the European Union, its institution, and the arguments for and against remaining and leaving.  Visitors are encouraged to leave their comments and leaflets to add to our collection.

EU referendum books on sale @ People's History Museum

Shop highlight: EU referendum books

With the UK EU referendum firmly upon us, the question on everybody's lips at the moment seems to be 'in or out?'   We've stocked up on some great reads to help you decide which way to vote.  We hope these reads are as informative for you as they were for us!  As well as radical books, the shop offers stock from independent and local artists and stockists, including toys, gifts and homeware.  Don't forget when you shop with us, all your purchases go towards supporting the museum.
