The Museum of Brexit
Our plan is to bring together memories, stories and items that can help preserve our nation’s recent history. To recall, for future generations, the background of the recent struggle for the United Kingdom’s independence.
The EU reportedly spent £112 million to build its own Brussels museum (with £10 million annual running costs), and has spent millions more on buildings associated with the 'Fathers of Europe'. But there's another side of the tale to tell.
This is the website of those working towards creating a new Museum of Sovereignty.
This is the story of Brexit.
The Museum of Brexit.
With lockdown restrictions easing, some people are telling us they feel a bit happier with taking in item donations.
It's obviously down to individuals to decide for themselves, so please accept their decision and just hold onto the items for now if they want to wait longer.
And with any drop off, obviously just use common sense. Wash your hands, bag things first, and fill in the donation form before you get there so you don't need to borrow a pen.
In the meantime, we are still recruiting volunteers to gather items. We still have some big geographical gaps that need to be filled. If you want to help us plug them, do drop us a line. Being listed now does not mean you have to accept donations until you are happy doing so: we only list email addresses, so you are in control.
Our priority is your safety.

Help us build the collection
We have a very important mission here at the Museum of Brexit Project.
It is to gather together artefacts and stories, that both capture the academic context for future researchers, but also help to engagingly inform the general public through displays.
To do that we are going to need your help.
