Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, Bristol Reviews
Bristol museum is free entry, situated at the top of Park Street, a short walk up a steep hill from Bristol city centre easily accessible by bus as well as on foot up Park Row (far less steep). The museum works include a natural history section, art, mineral rocks and china among other permanent exhibits and interesting exhibitions which change every few months, some may be chargeable. It's a small building on four levels, pretty and full of delightful surprises and interesting for all age groups. The museum is close to Cabot Tower, across the road (Brandon Hill) another delightful location for kids to play and climb the tower for free proving stunning views over Bristol.
Great museum with some fine exhibits and artworks. But let's be clear about one thing; trade creates wealth. Bristol due to its location historically and to a lesser extent presently is an important port. Worldwide most thriving ports (hubs of international trade) have created and supported wealthy cities from which great architecture and culture inevitably evolve. Viewing recommended but keep an open mind
Really enjoyed our visit here, only downside was we entered via the side door and asked at the desk how much for two adults? We her told £7 each. It turned out it was free, we paid for an exhibition entrance we didn't want😏 so be careful. The zoology exhibits are dated but very interesting, upper floors are best.
Lovely old fashioned museum but very well looked after. Great exhibits and some fine paintings. Lots to see here. Cafe is worth a visit too. Good coffee.
Great place to visit with the kids or friends even on your own.It is free to get in but you can give them a donation if u like.Great animal section. Wonderful art section. And much more.Also a lovely little cafe.
