About Us

The Museum of British Colonialism is a network and platform for facilitating global conversations about British colonialism and its legacies. We make visible suppressed and marginalised histories and elevate underrepresented voices in order to challenge damaging myths. We are a transnational, anti-racist and anti-colonial organisation.

We challenge traditional assumptions of what a ‘museum’ is and does. We do not hold a physical collection. Instead, we create, share, and act as a repository for digital resources that highlight lived experiences of British colonialism. In doing so, we seek to be truly accessible to all. 

Please contact us if you have a story to share or would like to collaborate with us. We would love to hear from you.
