Championing the impact of youth on modern society, the Museum of Youth Culture is formed from the archives of YOUTH CLUB, a non-profit Heritage Funded collection incorporating over 150,000 photographs, ephemera and educational texts from over 400 photographers and writers celebrating youth culture history. From the bomb-site Bicycle racers in post-war 1940s London, to the Acid House ravers of 1980s Northern England, the Museum of Youth Culture empowers the extraordinary everyday stories of growing up in Britain.

Museum of Youth Culture represents the world's most comprehensive collection of youth culture content tailored for the specialist handling of young people's heritage. A diverse youth engagement is at the heart of the Museum incorporating skills training, talks and workshops, helping to inspire future generations through the power of youth culture. We work together with writers and academics from The Subcultures Network to make youth culture history accessible to everyone.
