The Red Lodge Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • If you're interested in history or design or old houses or just in people, then you should visit this fascinating house. The whole building is interesting but the oak room is magnificent. An original oak panelled room from 1570. If there's a guide fella sat in the corner when you visit, ask him about the house and the room. The information he has to share with you will transform your visit and give you a new perspective on the city. The place is owned and managed by Bristol City Council and it's free to get in though donations are welcome. If you visit Bristol you should go, if you live in Bristol, why haven't you been?

  • It is free to enter. This house was built in 1580. The furnitures and decoration are protected in the original forms. The decorations of each rooms are different. You can see original oak panelling in the great oak room.

  • Hidden gem. Lots of information in each room, dressing up, nice paintings. Small but lovely.

  • What an incredible slice of Bristol history - this little gem is tucked away but well worth a visit. The original wood carvings in the main hall are spectacular. Friendly knowledgeable staff on hand as well. The garden is best viewed from above ;)

  • A beautiful piece of history right in the middle of town. I was wandering past from the car park by Colston Hall and came across this place last week. Free entry, with donations very welcome, a guide in period costume welcomes you and provides you with an information sheet about the house and highlights about each room of the tour. It’s only a small place but well worth 45 minutes of your day as it gives a real sense of the history of the area and there’s some amazing carving in the walls of the oak room. I’m not a history buff but it’s definitely worth a visit (and a suggested donation!)
