  • I visited with a school group (Y5) and we had an excellent time. Our Guide, a lovely gentleman called Edward, was wonderful. He was so passionate about the boat and her history, and, as he took us all around the boat, he kept the children engaged from start to finish. We also had a space to lock up bags and packed lunches when we arrived, then returned to them at lunchtime to use picnic tables (outdoor, but sheltered & under patio heaters). After lunch we had a well thought out and engaging workshop and a free goodie bag for the class to take back to school. An excellent day all round, highly recommended! I definitely recommend doing the boat tour first, then a quick look around the museum, then lunch, then finally the workshop, when the children are ready to sit down for a bit. Last year we did the museum first, but the children were just itching to get on board, and didn't take much in. If you do the boat tour first, the museum will be a lot more meaningful for the children.

  • SS Great Britain is a great and unique "museum". Since the opening the museum has so much evolved! Now you can go inside the boat and see how it was as you were a passenger. You can go on each deck and even under to admire the boat's hull! I really enjoyed my time there. I passed nearly 3 hours watching, reading and listening to the stories told by passionate employees. And I would have needed more time there. If you come to Bristol, you have to take a look at this wonderful place. The dockyard is also a nice place to have a walk and see giant cranes and other dock stuff.

  • Every little detail has been thought of. The ship is located in a very clever dry dock, with glass around the hull of the ship and water on top. This allows you to walk around the outside of the hull below the water. I thought this was particularly good. The interior of the ship was fully restored with loads to see and a lot of information to take in.The visitor centre is very interactive, with lots for children to see and do.

  • Very interactive displays and exhibitions, you get up close and personal with the ship herself. Lots and lots to see, read, touch and play with. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Give yourselves a good few hours if you really want to take it all in. That said, the adult tickets last a year!

  • Brilliant for young Lads.(and girls) Extra things for kids to do. Fantastic history. Really well informed guides. Unfortunately I recommend you take two visits (Keep your ticket / valid 1year).
