In the last month, the BBC has aired its documentary exploring the rise of notions of ‘fake homelessness’ and punishment-led crackdowns on begging. Unhelpful notions of ‘deserving’ and ‘undeserving’ poor, with their roots in the Poor Laws of the 1600s seem to have increased as the levels of homelessness continue to rise…. We have witnessed these discussions in our events and exhibitions

About Us

Driven by experience of homelessness. MoH explores the art, history and culture of homelessness to change society 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.
