4.1
#2 of 9 in Wildlife in Bristol
Peek into a day in the life of 18th-century England at Blaise Castle House Museum, which preserves the lifestyle, art, clothing, and toys of the estate's former inhabitants. Housed in an 18th-century Georgian residence that was once inhabited by English nobility and their servants, the museum shows visitors what people wore, what toys children played with, what the schooling was like, and how the cooking and cleaning got done. You'll also learn about the history of the house and estate. After touring the museum, move on to the grounds to explore the 18th-century Gothic castle that was the foundation of the estate.

  • Gloriously old-fashioned museum with displays of bygone things from the local area, including a display of lavatory bowls. It's nicely maintained, has some imaginative special displays for children and it's free.
  • Cracking museum... great costume... toys and baths! Dressing up fab too... not forgetting the school room
  • Free museum which shows how people used to live in the area. Only took about 30 minutes to see it all. Not something I would go out of my way to visit but if you are in the area I would pop in.
  • Lovely little museum full of interesting items
  • Small but interesting museum. And the grounds are fantastic!
