- Museums and Art Galleries
Suitable for all ages
Venue type: Indoor
Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery houses a huge and exciting range of mysterious objects to fascinate and educate, from glorious sea dinosaurs to magnificent art! A visit to the region's largest museum and art gallery is guaranteed to inspire you.
Curiosity is the under 7s area: younger visitors can tell creepy stories in the crystal cave, act out a performance on stage, get theatrical with the puppets, make a pot or try the puzzling animuddle game: just some of the activities for you and your child to enjoy in their own mini museum! The under 7s area is part of a larger gallery which invites visitors to explore objects from the Archaeology and World Culture collections and is well worth exploring with older types.
You can also pick up a Family Explorer Kit which contains things like a magnifying glass to help you explore more fully!
A changing and dynamic temporary exhibition programme complements the museum's vast permanent collections.
