Museum Details: Immigration the Raison d’Être of New Museum in London

“We thought there was a gap in Britain’s cultural landscape, which is crying out for a permanent museum like this…We want to tell the long and magnificent story of people coming to this country and leaving it over thousands of years. We want to be an important cultural space to contextualise [sic] this debate which seems on everyone’s lips.”

Sophie Henderson, Director of London’s Migration Museum Project, which opened to the public on April 26th
