    What our visitors say...

    We've hosted a wide range of organisations and this is what they had to say:

    "A few weeks back, Barker Langham’s whole London team made the short trip from Islington to Lewisham to visit the Migration Museum’s Taking Care of Business exhibition.

    It is a refreshing and timely reminder of the power of honest storytelling and simple but careful design to ‘immerse’ and transport us; such as a remake of a Chinese takeaway, complete with counter-laminated menus, wall-mounted telephone, and a child’s half-finished homework stacked behind the counter.

    The exhibition honours the people it represents and encouraged us to venture back out into the everyday with fresh eyes and renewed curiosity and appreciation.

    The gift shop is given new life as a delightful Maker’s Market that celebrates local artists and entrepreneurs.

    As a team, we were thrilled by what we experienced. Needless to say, we can’t wait to see what the Migration Museum does next."

    Thank you again for organizing our visit and welcoming us to your beautiful exhibition earlier this month. It was just as touching as the first time.

    Thank you so much for hosting us yesterday. The team really enjoyed their visit and I know a couple are planning on visiting again this weekend, with families in tow.

    The Migration Museum was a perfect venue for our staff away day, enabling us to connect with each other in new and meaningful ways through the stories that were shared. The team at the museum were a dream to work with in the run up to the day and made us feel so welcome.
