Welcome to the Museum


Be among the first to see a brand new series of artworks created by Journeys Festival International's ROOTS group (members of the local Refugee and Asylum Seeker Community), which explores the question - 'What is Home?' Map your family's journey to Leicester on a world map using coloured threads to pin the places your family has made their home. The result will show a colourful weaving of our great city of Leicester - home to people from every corner of the world. Also, see where our Ancient Mummies come from!

You can help create giant collage to explore what we mean by 'home' or decorate a giant hand that will be attached to the railings to welcome all visitors to the museum. Make your home more welcoming by making your own traditional Indian 'Toran' - a fabric sign placed above your door as a welcome to your home.
