We are all about the hidden narratives – the sections of society that have previously been ignored by museums.
We work with local people to creatively explore collections of objects that belong to ordinary people – diaries, documents, love letters photographs and more.
These then form the exhibitions of MOOP, which reveal the power of objects to tell ordinary people's stories. We are all about the hidden narratives – the sections of society that have previously been ignored by museums.
Our first pop-up museum took place at The Spire during the Brighton Fringe Festival in 2018, where we won the Brighton Fringe Visual Arts Award in Association with HOUSE and AOH.
Next up we have MINI MOOP: CHRISTMAS taking place at Jubilee Library from the 5th - 29th December, with free admission during normal library opening hours.
Get involved… The Museum of Ordinary People are looking for stories that represent Brighton Christmas Traditions.... Do you take part in The Burning of the Clocks? Do you go ice skating every year? Do you swim on Christmas day? Are there other traditions - personally / with your friends or city wide that mean something to you? We want to hear from you...
