Our Story

Museum X, our Community Interest Company, was set up to explore Pan-Africanism and it’s significance to the centrality of Black Britain. Labels of identity are being contested and evolving, replacing outdated narratives in a time where Britain’s Black population is increasingly diverse.


Museum X works with people and organisations through creative ways to experience cultural heritage. Our mission is to create a museum with people. We’re free to call it whatever we want it to be.
