Episode notes

Manchester Museum houses 4.5 million objects, but how many of them does it have the right to keep? In this episode of the Mill, we speak to Esme Ward, the Director of the Manchester Museum. We discuss how the museum is approaching decolonisation and repatriation in their collection and Esme talks about the museum’s ongoing transformation project.
