For the Museum's Youth Online Takeover in 2020 organised by members of the Youth Collective, the group set themselves the task of reimagining a museum where all voices are heard and where history is reinterpreted to account for a collection of untold narratives.

Here, they discuss what key objects in the Museum mean to young people, from the bust of Olaudah Equiano to Kehinde Wiley's Ship of Fools.
