East Midlands Museums Map Your History Project

View your world from a new perspective.

Dive in, travel back in time and explore these interactive history maps online, created by community-based museums across the UK East Midlands. Each museum carefully looks after artefacts, photographs and documents packed full of fascinating and poignant stories about past lives. They are currently working with The Earth Museum to map a selection of their many treasures, bringing them out from the museum and re-connecting them digitally with people, places and stories associated with them in times gone by. Just start your journey by clicking on the images below.

We want to add a lot more content so please get in touch and let us know about other stories you would love to see on these maps!
