Just as the title says! None of the displays have been updated in 25+ years! You're not allowed to push a pushchair/stoller/pram around, so not a great place to go if you have young kids

Well done to the Council for setting up such a lovely place to visit and so near the city centre. Our trip included a visit to the top of the folly with great views. The Museum was an added attraction. Bristol is full of good open green areas and Blaise Castle is another of good quality.

Then there are the grounds to walk/run/bike ride on. Streams to cross. There is also a cafe with a range of food for those who... More

Nothing to dislike, a great museum giving an interesting picture over the last couple of centuries. An interesting exhibition of clothing and some very interesting old paintings are also displayed plus a copy of Humphrey Reptons red book are here for you to enjoy.

The museum is like trip to the pass. It is small but with very interesting things, such as dress from 18th century. The people are very nice and helpful.

A lovely day out, lots of pretty walks, a small castle, a museum and all free! The lovely Blaise Hamlet is just 5 minutes away and well worth a look. Free plenty

This is a marvellous estate in the Westbury-on-Trym area of Bristol. It has large grounds which are ideal for family picnics or just walking. The grounds are free to get into but there is a small charge to get into the house. There are various follies and woods, and the house contains an interesting small museum. Blaise Hamlet nearby is...
