Reasons for trip

I have been to Bristol Museum a couple of times now and I still want to go back for more. It is like a mini version of the Natural History Museum in London but just not so crowded.

I went last week (in school holidays) with my husband and a friend of mine. There is plenty of space to move around and stop when you want to. There are lots of wildlife exhibits and local wildlife too, and so it is good to see what may be around our countryside and identify what I have already seen in my garden.

The museum is free to get in and the staff are very helpful. Parking for the museum is in a side street – University street. The only problem with parking here is that the machine wants your car registration number but there are no letters on the keypad so I just put in numbers and pay the money – at least it is something to place in the windscreen to show that payment has been made. I have had no problems with this way of displaying a parking ticket, even though it is not a valid one!

The café in the museum is nice and roomy and there is a variety of snacks, drinks and cakes. It is a great little place to visit if the weather turns English in the middle of the week and you need someone to go.
