Museums and archives

COVID-19 Archives → Tell us your experience of living in Wigan Borough in 2020

We’re asking you to record your experiences of life now, as it is happening. We’d love to receive COVID-19 diaries (currently being written), scrapbooks, photographs, videos and poems - whatever you have.

The experience of every member of our community is relevant - young and old, school children and adults, workers and those self-isolating at home.

Find out how you can contribute to the COVID-19 Archives.

Advance notice of day closure: Wigan Local Studies (at the Museum of Wigan Life), will be closed to researchers and volunteers on Saturday 5 March. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Archives: Wigan & Leigh at Leigh Town Hall will be open as normal on Saturday 5 March, 10am - 1pm, 1:30pm - 4pm.
