A MUSEUM has renamed its Christmas exhibition Winterfest.
The Museum of the Home had until 2010 displayed family living rooms with festive motifs from the Tudor period.
But this year it says visitors can “celebrate Diwali, Hanukkah, Christmas, Lunar New Year and learn how to mark them at home”.
The Rooms Through Time collection will also feature a new “Winter Solstice Celebration through a black queer lens.”
Toby Young, founder of the Free Speech Union, was outraged: “Britain’s museum sector has been completely taken over by the cult of the awake.”
The former Geffrye Museum, the venue in Hoxton, East London, dropped the name of 17th-century slave owner Robert Geffrye following repair work.
The exhibition has received more than £8 million in government subsidies since 2018.
The outrage comes after Brighton University bosses “woke up” staff that the word “Christmas” was too “Christian” and might offend some students.
The Local History Museum has been asked for comment.
