The Museum of Soho | mosoho
The museum was started c1990 by a group of amateurs, keen to preserve any material relating to the history of Soho. Initially, it was hoped that a traditional museum could be established,but we have gradually come round to the idea that a 'virtual' museum would actually be more feasible.
We now have a large interactive Touch-screen situated in Sherwood St (Opp The Piccadilly Theatre) Where you can access Illustrations,Galleries and articles about Soho from the street.
Our main objectives, are:
•to create a safe haven for any artefacts, documents, etc. relating to Soho
•to ensure that these items are recorded professionally
•to create a database and locations guide for the whole collection
•to investigate digital media for future development of the museum.
MoSoho is always looking for volunteers, so if you have a skill or free time that you can give, drop us a line by going to the contact panel on the right and e-mail or write. We are also interested in your memories, memoribillia, photographs, film e.t.c. relating to Soho.
At the Museum of Soho you will be able to share this extraordinary place with the rest of the World.....
We do rely on your contributions and over time this site will grow, it is open-ended and eventually we will have a searchable database open to you.
We are currently a virtual museum found at www.themuseumofsoho.org.uk and www.mosoho.org.uk We also have a sister site at www.sohomemories.org.uk
