Over the coming days we will be releasing case studies from urban museums around the world, looking at the history, purpose and challenges to museums in particular settings from the perspective of the practitioners themselves.


In advance of our free symposium “Museums, Cities, Cultural Power” we take a quick look at the subject matter being discussed around relationships between urban museums, their neighbourhoods and the people who inhabit them.
