Migration Museum

Migration Museum


The Migration Museum explores how the movement of people to and from Britain across the ages has shaped who we are – as individuals, as communities and as a nation. We stage engaging exhibitions and dynamic events, alongside a far-reaching education programme for primary, secondary, university and adult learners. We also have a bank of teaching resources on migration, immigration, emigration, multiculturalism and cultural diversity.
