Explore our online resources

The Migration Museum is reopening to visitors on 23 October 2020, but we know that many people may not be able to visit us due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We have lots of online content for you to explore from the safety and comfort of your own home during this difficult period.

Below is a guide to our online content with links. We will be adding to and updating this page with new content.

In the meantime, we know that this is a difficult, uncertain time for everyone. Let’s all stay safe and look after each other.

100 Images of Migration

100 Images of Migration is the exhibition with which we launched the Migration Museum Project in 2013. The product of a competition run with the Guardian newspaper, it’s a collection of images by professional and amateur photographers that tell a compelling story about what migration means to people across the UK.

Keepsakes is a display of personal items that keep memories of migration and identity alive. These items and objects are either those that one generation has handed down to the next, or those that individuals keep as a reminder of a home, a country or a culture they have left behind or as some part of a past experience that they want to hold close to them.
