Museumand is more than a museum.
We’re a unique, vibrant, creative organisation dedicated to commemorating and celebrating the Caribbean contribution to life in Nottingham and the UK.
For many centuries, Caribbeans have helped to shape and influence our shared British culture, heritage and achievements, but their stories are often left untold. We aim to bring those stories to life for everyone, by exploring, preserving and sharing the history, heritage and culture, both past and contemporary.
Fascinating social histories. Moving personal accounts. Intriguing objects. Wonderful music, art, performance and crafts. You’ll find all that and more in our eclectic and often unexpected exhibitions and events.
Above all, we’re a museum without walls, in every sense. As a social history and community museum we travel to and connect with communities in Nottingham, our home, and further afield, especially those who may not normally visit traditional heritage organisations. Our exhibitions and events celebrate the lives and experiences of ordinary people, in a way that all people can recognise and embrace.
History and heritage isn’t only found in the pages of a book or in a museum, it’s about our lives, the things we do every day, the objects we use and treasure, the traditions and values we hold dear and the stories we tell. We unearth all those things, from the day-to-day, to the rituals and curious customs little is known about, revealing why they’re important in order to shine a light on our shared social history and culture.
Why not get involved or tell your story?

Best wishes, Catherine Ross & The Museumand Team
