ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a public heritage site concerned with labor history in Great Britain. The exhibition of the Work zone was characterized by absence in relation to labor history. The emphasis of the Work zone was futurological and its account of the history of labor in the country is shallow and nominal. The content of the exhibition was strongly characterized by the public-private partnership realized in the Millennium Experience. Hence, the meaning and narratives of the zone were dominated by the priorities of its private sponsor, Manpower.
