Purpose – This paper seeks to explore the Imperial War Museum North, located in Salford, and how it relates to both consumers and the wider area.
Design/methodology/approach – Utilising the work of Edward Soja, the authors aim to understand how his work serves to facilitate a greater understanding of both the museum itself as a space, and the role the physical place plays in the context of the local surroundings.
Findings – It is found that, the role of the museum is as a form of “culturally led regeneration”, in line with Soja's notion of “thirdspace”.
Originality/value – The paper will appeal to those who are concerned with town planning, urban regeneration and the role of museums in contemporary space and place.
