ROTHERHAM United are opening a new pop-up museum displaying the history of the nearly century old club.
Running from next Friday, July 1 until the end of summer, the museum will be located outside of New York Stadium as part of the lead-up to Rotherham becoming the world’s first Children’s Capital of Culture in 2025.
Aiming to celebrate the history of the club and its loyal fans, it will include player artefacts, interactive displays, a bespoke mural and audio stories from fans.
For younger fans, there will also be a Junior Millers area, including interactive games, a Minecraft tour of the stadium and a Lego table.
The exhibition — which coincides with the stadium hosting four Women’s Euros matches, has been curated by the Rotherham United Community Sports Trust (RUCST), who are hoping to use the opportunity to honour the team, female football players and Arthur Wharton, the first professional black football player who began his career in Rotherham.
Jamie Noble, head of cmmunity at Rotherham United, said: “Rotherham United’s history includes thrilling highs, devastating lows, landmark games and ground-breaking players.
“We’re really proud of our new pop-up museum and we’re looking forward to welcoming everyone from avid Millers fans to those who have never previously stepped foot in the town.”
