The National Trust and the Twentieth Century

Part of the Twentieth Century Society's lecture series Twentieth Century House Museums

A house museum is all about the people who have lived and worked there. For a twentieth century house, living memories and continuous occupation can offer us a particularly rich experience as we interpret the minutiae of lives and settings. In this series curators and historians reflect on house museums new and not so new, from the fight to save Melnikov’s House in Moscow as a museum to Kettles Yard in Cambridge, conceived in the 1950s as a new type of museum that felt like a house. This lecture is by David Adshead, Head Curator and Architectural Historian, The National Trust
