PEOPLE’S HISTORY MUSEUM

THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF DEMOCRACY, TELLING THE STORY OF ITS DEVELOPMENT IN BRITAIN: PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE.

Exhibitions include a stunning array of over 450 historic and contemporary banners, including the world’s oldest trade union banner, a symbol of resilience dating back to 1821 in addition to over 4,000 political posters, bearing witness to pivotal elections and impassioned campaigns for peace and equality.

In addition, lose yourself in the wit and satire of over 500 prints and cartoons, capturing the essence of social commentary across centuries, and admire the craftsmanship of over 7,000 badges and tokens, each a testament to the resilience of those who dared to challenge the status quo.

Among the treasures, you’ll also find personal artifacts belonging to iconic figures in political history, from Labour Party leader Michael Foot’s infamous “donkey jacket” to the desk of radical thinker Thomas Paine.

Visit the People’s History Museum and uncover tales of courage, resilience, and hope, and experience history come alive as we celebrate the power of the people in shaping a brighter tomorrow.
