What is it? A family-friendly museum where you can see everything from ancient Egyptian mummies to modern art.
Why go? Explore the museum’s permanent art and natural history collections, plus an enticing range of temporary shows. Highlights include the Bristol dinosaur (yes, it has one), a beautifully preserved Gypsy caravan and an ingenious flying machine. Right next to the iconic Wills Memorial Tower, the building’s pretty special too. Free entry.
