The Deaf Museum and Art Gallery

The BDHS was established in 1993 to promote and advance the interest in the discovery, preservation and conservation of the histories of Deaf people, their communities, culture and language.

It is a volunteers-led organisation with many of its activities run by dedicated volunteers. We have, however, only recently appointed a new part-time Curator of Heritage and Collections for the Museum and another part-time position to take charge of our Deaf archives as an archivist.

Support Us and deaf history

Your support is vital and helps the Museum to share the collection with the world.
