Latest news

Due to unprecedented demand, we are now FULLY BOOKED for all workshops at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery until the end of the academic year. There are very few slots left for any independent visits to Bristol Museum & Art Gallery and M Shed. Please contact us for any late availability  – we’re sorry that we can’t guarantee we will be able to book you in to visit.

We are now taking bookings for Terms 1 & 2 (September to December 2022).

All groups of 10 or more need to book a visit to our museums in advance through the Learning team, so contact us for further information about making your booking. Do remember to bring a copy of your booking confirmation with you when you visit.

*(please note that there is a booking fee of £35 per class for schools with pupils under 16 years of age intending to visit either the Grayson’s Art Club or Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibitions. This booking fee guarantees a specific date and time for your visit, and includes all admission charges. Normal admission fees apply to groups with adults and students aged 16+).
