Open 12-7pm Monday to Sunday
Chronicling the highs and lows of teen life from the baby boomers to the class of COVID-19, the Museum of Youth Culture is our collective memory of being young, told through your photographs, objects and memories. All submitted by the public and collected during a national lockdown, in the midst of a pandemic. From first loves to first jobs, favourite hangouts to stories and objects that tell what it was and is like growing up in Britain.
Included is our very own “Ace” display.
Explore the social history of Britain and find out more, through the estates we live on, the histories of our parents and grandparents, and the scenes and sounds that defined our youth.
The collection holds thousands of images, as well as texts and ephemera all relating to youth culture, and this accessible and safe home for the archive is used to inspire and educate younger generations, providing the tools to record and have an impact on their own culture. To share your memories and photographs of being a teenager and become part of the Museum of Youth Culture, see here.
