Graft bring a new display to the museum

A brand new display has gone into the Sea Mills Museum today. It’s courtesy of Graft who are behind the Sea Mills Pattern Project and the upcoming mural at Sea Mills station.

It’s the first display to have been completed by a group outside the Sea Mills 100 project itself, so it’s a great step forward in our hopes to update the displays more regularly.

The display includes Graft’s Sea Mills pattern which was designed in co-operation with local people and takes the flora and fauna of the area as its theme. It’s accompanied by photographs from their project and new audio tracks on our green powered audio player. The museum is open every day between 9am and 5pm.

Anyone else who is interested in creating a display for the museum please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.

Hallen Drive school remembered

The museum, aka the phone box on Sea Mills Square has a new display to remember the old Infants School at Hallen Drive. It includes pictures of the school taken just before its demolition this year and pictures of the demolition itself. There are also some old images of the school in the 1950’s

We’d love to include more pictures of the school still in use, you can send them to us via

The phone box is currently closed, but all the display can be viewed from the outside.
