Sikh Museum Initiative-Exploring the Historical World of the Sikhs

There has been a long history linking the Sikhs to the British since the eighteenth century. This history is relatively unknown and requires an initiative to bring closer introspection and investigation. As a result the Sikh Museum Initiative will focus on locating and uncovering relics and documents which binds the two communities together. This national programme will leave a lasting legacy for future generations so that second generation Sikhs will understand the close relationship that exists.

  • Aims
  • To create a digital platform for Sikh exhibits.
  • To give lectures on shared Sikh and British history.
  • To source relics and artefacts in public as well as private institutions.
  • To preserve places and artefacts linking both communities.
  • To work with Schools to share common Sikh and British heritage.
