Atkins, the museum’s creator and curator, spent decades playing in bands like Public Image Ltd., Ministry, Killing Joke, Nine Inch Nails and the supergroup Pigface. The museum, which opened in 2021, pulls from Atkins' personal collection of memorabilia, photos and other rarities.

In November, Atkins was inducted as a fellow of In Place Of War by Brian Eno, at a ceremony held in London, along with fellow inductees Peter Gabriel, Igor Cavalera and Laima Leyton.
