Brexit has made history
The Brexit referendum of 2016 was one of the key historical turning points of our lifetimes. There is a tremendous story behind this that deserves to be preserved. Unless we act, much of it will be lost. Gaps will then be filled with misperceptions, fake news, and myth.
Our objective is to plug that gap at the time when it is easiest, right now while memories are fresh, attics are still filled with treasures, and before items and stories get lost.
The museum is the heart of the proposal and its main public space. It explains not just about what happened in 2016 (it would be quite boring if that’s all it did), but the deeper historical context and how the UK came to be the way it is – including areas that tend to get skipped on the national curriculum.
