Went to see the Grayson Perry tapestries, they were magnificent! What an amazing exhibition. Would have been helpful if the documentary room had been at the beginning of the tour, rather than the end...

We have seen a lot of Grayson Perry’s artworks previously. He could’ve at least given a few more for this exhibition. Nevertheless it was worthwhile. There are also Hogarth and Hockney on display alongside GP’s hangings.

We had gone to Bristol in order to see the Grayson Perry Tapestries, which did not disappoint. The rest of the museum was just as interesting, especially the Abyssinian reliefs.

The museum is free to enter although they do ask for a voluntary donation of £5. There are toilets, gift shop, baby feeding room and cafe on site. The Egypt section was really interesting. Some of the objects they have are really cool. However, the...More

Interesting free attraction that is a little dated in terms of displays. Has a section featuring dynosaurs that children will love plus stuffed animals. Lots of ceramics and glassware. Often has a special exhibition which has a chargable entrance fee.

We visited the museum primarily to see the Grayson Perry tapestries which were beautiful. The main art collection is also well worthwhile a visit. Unfortunately there is so much to see we will have to visit again another time.More
