Queens for a Day

A new exhibition by Citizen Curator is on display in the Video Room at the People’s Story Museum. Queens for a Day explores the history of galas and pageants in Leith. You can catch the exhibition until 11 March.

The exhibition showcases a specially commissioned film, material collected during the project and some of these lovely pins from the museum collections.

You can see other community exhibitions in our venues: Downstairs at People’s Story you can view the Crossings exhibition which was developed with Dancebase and Historic Environment Scotland. You can find out more on the Dancebase website.

About edinburghmuseumsoutreach

I'm the Outreach & Access Manager at Edinburgh Museums & Galleries (the museums service of the City of Edinburgh Council). I take the museums out to community groups and schools. I really enjoy meeting lots of people of different ages and backgrounds and helping them connect with our collections. I love showing people some of the amazing objects that we hold and I like helping them to remember the past or to create something amazing.
