People’s History Museum (PHM) is the national museum of democracy, telling the story of its development in Britain: past, present, and future.

The museum provides opportunities for all people 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.

2020 will mark the tenth birthday of the museum being in its home on the bank of the River Irwell in Manchester city centre; a site that combines a restored historic building and magnificent contemporary extension. It is from this location, with two permanent galleries, a conservation studio, a changing exhibition gallery, and extensive learning and community spaces, that the national museum of democracy invites people to discover over 200 years of ideas worth fighting for.

People’s History Museum will close on Sunday 31 December and re-open on Thursday 1 February 2024 so that it can carry out further work as part of the Welcome Project at PHM, which stems from the museum’s vision to be an exemplar for accessibility.

The first stage of the project took place in September and saw the replacement of the entrance doors with fully accessible sliding doors. The next, will be the installation of a Changing Places toilet and improvements to the visitor journey, to include a new digital screen, accessible signage and interactive digital elements.

The 2023 Banner Exhibition and Quiet installation will both close on 31 December 2023.

The museum will re-open on Thursday 1 February with the 2024 Banner Exhibition.
