Londonist – 18 Exhibitions To See This Summer In London And Beyond (03/08/2021)

“The news stories on migration often look at people coming to the UK but what about those who’ve left? A new display at this wonderful museum looks at people who’ve moved elsewhere over the last 400 years — from the Mayflower Pilgrims fleeing persecution, to the shameful deportation of Windrushers. There are lesser known stories too, such as Welsh emigrants who went to South America to form their own “little Wales beyond Wales”. The exhibition is creatively designed with departure boards and trollies carrying suitcases to give the place the feel of an airport.”
