Brent Museum

Brent Museum has been collecting material about the history of Brent for over 50 years and we have over 10,000 objects in our collection.

We have items which are thousands of years old but we also collect from the people living and working in Brent today so that our collection represent all communities, past and present.

From oil paintings to toys and flapper dresses to tool boxes we collect objects which tell all of the fascinating stories of Brent and its people.

Many of our objects can be viewed online through our online catalogue. We are currently working to improve the information about the objects on our database and are adding higher quality images.

Over 400 objects from the museum collection can be viewed in Brent Museum’s permanent gallery in Willesden Green. This gallery tells the story of Brent from prehistory all the way through to the present day.

Visitors can find out about an Eiffel tower in Wembley, why you might make a pilgrimage to Willesden and what the Victorian streets of Brent were really like.

The Heritage team produce a number of free temporary exhibitions every year at The Library at Willesden Green. These exhibitions often feature newly acquired objects, objects which have been in storage for decades and loaned objects from other museums. Please check our exhibitions page to see current and future exhibitions.

We run an exciting events program linked to the permanent museum and our temporary exhibitions. See our events calendar to find out more.

Schools and other groups can book sessions with our Learning Officer to delve deeper into Brent’s past and link with particular parts of the National Curriculum. To find out more visit our schools programme page.
