Who Are The ‘History Makers’?
At the Association of Independent Museums (AIM), we help around 1,000 museums in the UK – that is a lot of museums!
Thanks to funding from the lovely people at Biffa Award we have been able to give grants to some of these museums to put on new exhibitions that bring the stories of famous historical people to life so that everyone can learn about them.
We call these people ‘History Makers’ because their inventions and creations helped to shape the world we live in today and you can find out all about them on this website.
Make sure you click on things as you level up throughout the website and watch out for Billie the Bulb who can tell you more about each person…
We hope you enjoy discovering the incredible inventions, daring deeds and interesting ideas that these ‘History Makers’ are famous for.
If you like this website, keep visiting us, because we will be adding more amazing ‘History Makers’ from throughout history soon including Sir Humphry Davy, Joseph & Sarah Paxton, Oliver Cromwell, Annie Besant, Jayaben Desai, Noor lnayat Khan and William Lever.
