This is a relatively small museum on the city quayside and has a wide variety of exhibits of social industrial and trade history connected with Bristol. Admission is free but they like a donation if you enjoy the trip. There is a cafe which I liked by my wife didn't!
Subjects as diverse as The Slave Trade, The Chocolate Industry, Bristol Buses and trades Union history are covered in a way which makes them interesting and accessible to children. We took a 7 year old French girl for a tour and she was fascinated. They also do "behind the scenes" escorted tours from time to time which are even better. Ask at the information desk if there is one available on the day of you visit. Outside is the quayside with historic ships, the historic steam crane which you can sometimes visit and the steam railway which operates from time to time in the holidays. You can walk down the quayside to the SS Great Britain once you are done here. Finally there is a good value car park just a dozen steps away!
