The National Caribbean Heritage Museum

Catherine Ross founded the National Caribbean Heritage Museum in 2016. The museum is the first in the UK to celebrate Caribbean heritage, culture and social history. 

​As a museum ‘without walls’, 'Museumand' aims to connect with communities across the UK through pop-up exhibitions, art, music, performance and food.

Lynda-Louise Burrell is the other co-founder the Museum and is the Museum's full-time Creative Director.


​Catherine emigrated with her family from the Caribbean island of Saint Kitts to the UK in November 1958, when she was aged seven years old.
