Seek out new voices. Discover powerful stories.
Hear the gossip from the royal court, wrestle through the muscular history of classical masculinity, and beware the jaws of Big Mamma! Museum Remix proudly presents an incredible variety of powerful stories, all told by you - our community.
Wield your phone! Museum Remix community-driven labels, spread across seven University of Cambridge Museums, are waiting for you. Scan a QR code or tap whenever you see a colourful label to explore an alternative take on an object.
From digital exhibitions to short films, podcasts, music and artwork, there's plenty to explore from home. Head to our Explore the Collections page and select Museum Remix.
Watch our curators' take on some of the objects behind the Museum Remix content on the Museum Remix: Unheard homepage.
About the project
Which stories should museums tell in their galleries? Whose voices are heard?
Museum Remix is the University of Cambridge Museums’ experiment in museum storytelling. Since 2018, we have been working with our communities through creative workshops and online to explore how museums can become more inclusive and relevant spaces, and try out innovative ways to tell stories about our collections.
You can find out more about the development of the project on our Collections in Action site:
- Museum Remix: Unheard (2020)
- Museum Remix LGBTQ+ Stories from Cambridge Collections (2019)
- Museum Remix at the Museum of Classical Archaeology (2019)
- The Museum Remix (2018).
