What water will you keep?

A melted snowman. Droplets from a baby's bath. Sacred draughts from an Indian river. Just some of the items donated to London's newest museum.

In the atmospheric underground spaces of Somerset House, Amy Sharrocks invites you to consider our relationship with the most precious liquid the world has to offer.

As rainforests disappear and climate change turns fertile land into deserts, access to fresh water will be one of the key issues of the coming decades. Sharrocks invites you to browse the museum's collection and add to it yourself.
