Never Going Underground: Easter family events at People’s History Museum at People’s History Museum (PHM), City Centre, 1–17 April 2017, free entry - Visit now

It’s a pertinent time to learn about equality and the ways we can shape the world around us and People’s History Museum is presenting a stellar family programme this year to accompany its pioneering new exhibition Never Going Underground: The Fight for LGBT+ Rights.

Drop in throughout the Easter holidays to take part in daily special family trails and craft kaleidoscopic rainbow sun catchers as symbols of LGBT+ pride. Book ahead for special sessions including creating personal Molly Spoons (5 April) to reflect your unique personality (you can also act out stories using these in a theatre space) and Identity Boxes (12 April) to treasure family peg dolls, pictures, pop-up home interiors and other things that you can craft at the museum and represent what makes your own family special.

Making Identity Boxes at People’s History Museum

Whether you are a regular visitor or first timer we love that this vital national museum of democracy has such a creative programme for families, making important issues such as the on-going struggles for equality accessible to young and old alike. It provides a rare creative space for kids to reflect and engage on their own terms and together with their grown-ups too.

Book free tickets in advance.
