Germans in Britain: a Migration Museum Project touring exhibition
There’s more to Anglo-German relations than war and football. Explore the rich and fascinating history of German migrants to Britain in our new pop-up exhibition.

Germans have had an immense impact on British life over the centuries. Find out how British sport, science, banks, businesses, music, monarchs, art and design have all been shaped by their German connections.

Germans in Britain is curated by Dr Cathy Ross, Honorary Research Fellow at the Museum of London, and designed by Joe Ewart of Society.

This exhibition was realised through generous funding from the Schroder Foundation, the Kohn Foundation and a number of private sponsors.
