Visited with my husband and two children aged 10 and 13 on a trip to Bristol. The museum holds an variety of different exhibitions including ones on The ancient Egyptians, natural history, rocks and minerals and dinosaurs, so there is something of interest to everyone. Our children were particularly interested in a couple of exhibits by Banksy. All in all worth a visit especially as its free.

Located in a fantastic building with lovely space but can be a little standard when the temporary exhibits aren't up to much. Great selection of natural history tho and a nice cafe

Went in here to escape the rain, loved it from when I walked in to when I left.
I particularly liked the Egyptian section and the Natural History - there was loads of taxidermy to browse. Definitely recommend visiting this museum, you might enjoy it more than you think.

Not terribly large, but nonetheless a rewarding Museum to visit. Many interesting artifacts and pictures and very helpful staff. Not too much or too wearing on the legs and feet. Close by is Browns Restaurant for refreshments/meals.

A dull and uninspired collection of little merit, there are much better museums around England than this.
