The former national Museum of Labour History in Manchester, England, the People’s History Museum stands to conserve and interpret the study relating to the working crowd in the UK. It reveals to the world the history of democracy in Britain and about the day-to-day lives of Britons for the past 200 years. The museum boasts of printed material and objects that celebrate the lives of regular working class crowds in England.
Interesting topics such as Trade Unionism and Woman Suffrage are covered here along with General Elections and Football. There are Museum Galleries and Changing exhibitions, along with education services lined up for the public. The museum also has a study centre and a café, and a shop that sells merchandise. The newly done up museum has coherent galleries featuring improved exhibits interactive in nature.
The exhibition gallery is where the museum’s own collections are displayed and the community gallery is where the local talent and art work are displayed. The labour history archive walks a guest through an interesting story of the evolution of the labour history. With the intention of bringing the two sites to one central site, the Pump House Museum as it was then called, was superbly refurbished and was then brought to one location at the corner of Bridge Street and Water Street in 1990. The new museum was designed by the renowned city architect Henry Price.
