People’s History Museum


People’s History Museum (PHM) in Manchester is the national museum of democracy, telling the story of its development in Britain: past, present, and future. The museum provides opportunities for people of all ages to learn about, be inspired by and get involved in ideas worth fighting for; ideas such as equality, social justice, co-operation, and a fair world for all. PHM offers a powerful programme with annual themes, that visitors can explore through the museum galleries and programme of exhibitions and events. Visitors can browse the shop for unique souvenirs and gifts, and enjoy a bite to eat in the museum’s cafe bar The Left Bank.
