  • A real hidden gem. I had a few hours to spare in the city before an interview and after the cathedral, next for visitors is this museum (walking to it from the cathedral you pass Banksy's "Well hung lover" stay on the right hand pavement walking up hill) The museum is in a beautiful building, exhibits are well laid out and interesting. Really enjoyed the art exhibit. All in all you can easily spend a happy two hours here 😊

  • Excellent museum in city centre for kids wish I'd been there earlier. Surprisingly good collection of animals and dinosaurs. Also impressed with local exhibition of sea dragon. Had a lovely afternoon thank you. Only wish there are more kid interactions at different exhibition (some out of order) and refresh of kids play corner. Well done Bristol Museum!

  • It's a great place to spend a couple of hours with the children looking at things. Would have liked to see more dinosaur exhibitions but they have a limited amount of space and get a lot of different things on view for the space they have. All in all well worth visiting.

  • Nice museum. Great Grayson Perry exhibition. Giftshop doesn't have enough local interest books. Cafe badly lets them down. 'Not allowed' to heat up savoury pastries, which tasted of washing up liquid. Felt very municipal. Much better cafes locally.

  • A great local museum featuring a wide range of exhibit types. Everything from ancient Egypt to stuffed animals, local geology and ceramics, with something to surprise you around every corner whether a plane hanging from the ceiling or a Gypsy caravan. A museum in the Victorian tradition it tells as much of a story about the history of collecting as it does about its own collections. Great way to spend a few hours with children on a wet day.
