We were entranced by the art and the glass displays. My second visit to the museum and I'm sure that, if I go back to Bristol, I will visit again. There is so much to see!

There was so much to see. The relics of Egypt, the Gypsy wagon, the wonderful birds and animals on display - even the gift shop. Very enjoyable.

Plenty for the kids to see and interact with. For small and big kids , nice coffee shop and an area for little ones to play whilst mum has a bit of quiet time. Very informative for older children

Visited on the last day of the 'Exhibition of Death', which had some good artefacts but the layout was very cramped when there are so many people visiting. Good café and regular exhibits are always interesting.

The museum is nice from the outside. There are some nice works of art on the inside but in limited quantity.

We've been going to Bristol Museum and Art Gallery for years and still find new and exciting things to see and marvel at every time we go.

This is not a beautiful combination of the Tate and the Natural History Museum- this is instead a large but humble display of bits and pieces that is still a lot of fun for all the family. There are a few notable exhibits in the...More
