People’s History Museum launches online shop

The launch of People’s History Museum’s (PHM) new online shop means that everyone, everywhere can delve into a retail experience that reflects the vast collections, archives and galleries of the national museum of democracy.

A world where ideas worth fighting for are creatively explored in books, posters, artworks, children’s activities, toys, jewellery, t-shirts and more.

Independent companies, individual makers and an array of specialist publishers are all represented by the carefully curated selection of products. Some products are based upon collection pieces, such as the famous Manchester suffragette banner, and some are inspired by the world changing stories told by the museum, such as equality for all, workers’ rights, and votes for women.

PHM is the only place that brings all of these stories together and its shop is filled with unique and extraordinary products inspired by these events, with every purchase made helping to support the work of the museum.

Amber Greenall-Heffernan, PHM shop Manager, says, “People’s History Museum is Manchester based, but our audience is both national and international, so it’s brilliant to be able to extend the reach of our shop. Everything we stock links in some way to the museum and its collections and archives, meaning PHM shop is a totally unique retail experience. Making a purchase is also a wonderful way for people to support the museum and our work, which in these challenging times means a great deal.”

Whether you are looking for a product to brighten up your home, a recommended read or a gift idea with a difference, PHM’s online shop will be your go to.

On Wednesday 19 May 2021 the museum is planning to reopen, in line with the government’s latest roadmap.
