If you find yourself in Manchester in the near future, don’t miss the People’s History Museum (originally the National Museum of Labour History). The museum houses an impressive collection of labour-related objects and documents, presented throughout a series of themed exhibition spaces. It is dedicated entirely to the history of the United Kingdom’s working classes, recounting and documenting the daily lives, work, and leisure activities of British subjects over the past 200 years.
But beyond this, the museum spotlights suffrage as the path toward democracy, serving additionally as an archive and study centre. Though Henry Price’s building may not live up to the content housed within, a tad heavy on the scenography, the visit is well worth the detour.
