The Migration Museum Project

Dr Murray Watson, co-author of  Invisible Immigrants: The English in Canada since 1945 wrote to let me know of The Migration Museum Project and a guest blog post he wrote for it.

The Migration Museum Project plans to create the UK’s first dedicated Migration Museum and to tell the story of movement into and out of the UK in a fresh and engaging way. "The museum will be an enquiry into who we are, where we came from and where we are going. Britons at home and abroad have a shared cultural history and an exciting future. We aim to represent the thrilling tales, the emotion and the history that have gone into shaping our national fabric; we aim to be the museum of all our stories."
