Welcome to our blog.

Welcome to the People’s History Museum blog. On this page we will keep you updated with life at PHM; our collections, events, people and random musings!
PHM tells the story of ‘ideas worth fighting for’; its collections consist primarily of items from the last 200 years of the organised labour movement in Britain representing the social history of working people.

The museum and archive hold an extensive collection of objects, posters, badges, paintings and some 70,000 photographic images. The museum also holds the largest collection of historic trade union and political banners in the world and is the UK’s leading authority on the conservation and study of banners. See here for more info. (http://www.phm.org.uk/our-collection/).
