About Us

The Museum of Homelessness is being developed by people from all walks of life, including those who have been homeless. Our community explores the art, history and culture of homelessness to make a difference for homeless people today. The first museum of its kind in the UK, we make the invisible visible through collecting, research, events and exhibitions. We do not yet have a building, so we are working with partners to produce our public programme.

Collection and Archive

The Museum of Homelessness has a small but growing collection of objects and archival records drawn from various organisations, individuals and through its projects.

This section of the site contains a monthly selection of an object or story chosen by a member of the MoH community and although not publicly accessible they can be viewed on request.
