Postcards from Lockdown: local museum asks children & young people to share experiences

Have you found something interesting to do while on lockdown? How’s home learning been for you? Are you missing particular people of activities? Are you worried about anything?

These are the questions that Sea Mills Museum is appealing to children and young people in Bristol to answer about their lockdown experience.  The museum is collecting postcards to create a lasting record of their thoughts and feelings about lockdown, all of which will be displayed in the museum and on notice boards around Sea Mills and Coombe Dingle.

Children are invited to answer these questions either in words or in pictures and can be as honest and creative as they like!

To create your postcard you can either use a piece of paper or card about 14cm x 10cm (that’s 5.5 inches x 4 inches) or alternatively, download one of the postcard templates on the museum’s website HERE.

You can either send your postcard by post to 28 St Edyth’s Road, Sea Mills, BS9 2ES, or, email it to

You can also get your postcards to the museum without leaving home by sharing them on Instagram or Twitter, tagging @SeaMills100 and using the hashtag #LockdownPostcard.
