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.
Very interesting attraction even if you are not a massive marine or sailing fan. Very well executed, interactive with great attention to detail. You will learn a bit about history and long and twisted journey of this great ship. Great and entertaining place to visit not just for kids. Worth checking out.
Beautiful ship and fascinating museum. Very visitor friendly. Tickets valid for a year so we've already been back. We look forward to another visit in the Spring, so much to see. Dockyard Cafe also recommended. You can pop out for lunch, then back to the ship.
Absolutely amazing, information is clearly displayed and the layout is amazing. The displays are interactive and you can even dress up in Victorian clothing for free! One of the best experiences we have ever had. Amazing how much work has gone into the place and how accurate it is. Will definitely be returning - on the tickets that are automatically valid for a year!
What a fabulous experience visiting the SS Great Britain. The museum was fascinating and the engineering technology of the day quite amazing. But inside the vessel was a whole new world of history, so well preserved and so interesting to explore. Thank you to all the people who have designed and maintained such a treasure in maritime history.
