Madhouse, My House? Exhibition at Hackney Museum

An interactive and accessible exhibition exploring the institutionalisation of people with learning disabilities.

Until the 1980s many people with learning disabilities were forced to live in hospitals for 'idiots', 'imbeciles' and the 'feeble minded'. Explore life at St. Leonard's using the stories of two ex-patients: Harvey Waterman and Mabel Cooper. 

Thursday 2nd February - Friday 20th May
Hackney Museum, E8 1GQ
