Celebrating the scenes, styles and sounds forged by young people over the last 100 years, the new Museum of Youth Culture has opened in Carnaby Street.
Exhibitions include a Reconstructed Teenage Bedroom installation journeying through the last five decades of youth self-expression within the confines of four walls.
The installation includes iconic newspaper clippings, publicly submitted photographs, records, zines and old school bedroom ephemera including a boombox.
There is also a Rusty Pin Badge Collection showcasing a collection of badges from protest statements to favourite bands.
A group show of Museum of Youth Culture photographers in the Basement Gallery includes work by Gavin Watson and Peter J Walsh.
Also exhibited will be the first public showing curated from the many thousands of incredible public submissions from our Grown Up In Britain campaign, shared with us during lockdown.
The museum also has an event space and a shop, which sells eco-friendly subculture, music and counterculture related books, clothing, posters and prints from independent artists.
