London's queer history on display

Immerse yourself in an East London flat-share at the Museum of the Home.

London's queer history on display

One of the features of London's Museum of the Home is its gallery installations that showcase Rooms Through Time.

The galleries are planned to be overhauled to explore new ways to represent the various communities within which the museum exists.

Construction of the new installations will begin on 7 January and will reopen in summer 2024.

One of the new installations that will be constructed will showcase a queer flat-share from the early 2000s.

The flat-share will be set within an ex-council building in Hackney and will present the story of Nadia and Ashley - a couple - who are looking for a flatmate to move into their spare room. On a night out at The George & Dragon, they meet Alex and invite her to move in. The three women work together to redecorate their shared home to create a space to call their own.

"Real Rooms centres diverse, thought-provoking and personal stories of home and demonstrates Museum of the Home’s continued commitment to honouring the lived experiences of the communities it serves..." explains Danielle Patten, Director: Creative Programmes and Collections.
