Greetings From...a history of souvenirs @ Migration Museum

Greetings from…, a new exhibition at the Migration Museum, celebrates the power of souvenirs, from the poignant to the marvelously kitsch and eccentric. Souvenirs are often seen as insignificant trinkets, yet they play an important role in memory-making, how we see ourselves, and our relationships with people and places.
Come along and see treasured keepsakes that migrants have brought with them across the world, alongside familiar mementoes of holidays, love tokens and artworks that turn the idea of a souvenir on its head. You can also jump inside a selfie snow dome and create your own digital postcards to send to your friends.

From November 12, 2018 – July 28, 2019
