Wasn't one of the promises that won Brent LBOC 2020 to showcase a Museum of All Brent Life???

The murals should have been one of the Museum's top exhibits!!!

We used to have a museum that did this - the Grange!

The Grange Museum "migrated" to Willesden Green in 2006.

Brent Museum, on the second floor at Willesden Green Library, does not have the same "old world" atmosphere, but still provides an excellent showcase for the history of the borough. They also have some very good temporary exhibitions, such as the current one "Brent's Journey to Justice".

If you haven't been there, I would recommend a visit.
