The Museum of Youth Culture Wants Your Teenage Memories (Video)


The Museum of Youth Culture is crowdsourcing photographs, objects, and other artifacts from people’s youths, Lonely Planet reported. It doesn’t matter when you were a teenager or young adult or what types of items you have either.

After all, we all were teenagers once, and who doesn’t love a little nostalgia?

The museum is actually more like a digital archive with over 150,000 photographs and texts from many different contributors that highlight the impact young people have had on our heritage, according to its website.

There are dozens of collections that are currently up on the website. Although most collections are from the 80’s and 90’s, the museum is interested in youth artifacts from every era.

“From the bomb-site Bicycle racers in post-war 1940s London, to the Acid House ravers of 1980s Northern England, the Museum of Youth Culture empowers the extraordinary everyday stories of growing up in Britain,” the museum wrote on its website.

The museum’s looking for items for its “Grown Up Britain” project, but the museum is also open to submissions from all over the world, according to Lonely Planet.

Old photos of your unfortunate fashion choices or your old poems from freshman year are all worth sending in. In order to submit, simply visit the submission page on the museum’s website and include the story behind your submission, or other stories about your youth. Submissions must have a photo image of the artifact, as well.
