My Recent Adventures Part 4 – Bristol Museum & M-Shed

Earlier this month one of my younger sisters, Miss G, had her Jazz dance exam down in Bristol, and one of my other sisters, Miss E,  had some uni exams up in Birmingham. My youngest sis, Miss T, went with Mum and G to the dance hall, while my Step-Dad & I got to spend the day with my niece, Miss P.

First stop was the Bristol City Museum on the Triangle at the top of Park Street. Here are some of the pics I took on the way round…

We then stopped for a picnic lunch outside the museum, before heading back in so Miss P could finish looking at one last bit that had her very occupied!

After that we headed out into the wind and walked round to a woodworking shop that my Step-Dad was interested in having a look at. He bought a couple of things in there while Miss P and I sat at the top of Christmas Steps & sheltered from a quick hail shower.

Next we walked on down to the harbourside and along to the M-Shed Museum. I didn’t take many pics this time round, but I have been a couple of times before so have some to share…

All in all it was another great day out. And I think we walked a total of 7 miles (though a lot of that was aimlessly wandering around the museums).

We were certainly shattered on the way home!

Stay tuned for more pictures of the adventures with my family over the holidays. Next up is our trip to Hidcote Gardens and here is a sneak peek…

  1. Looks like you had a fab time….really love the fossils but the guy in one of the painting looks like he needs the loo 😂😂


  2. Very nice it was almost as good being there, you save me so much money on flight and hotel, Thanks lol. On the last of the pictures from the museum what is the top of the 3 wooden things? the one with all the points sticking out. Thanks again.


    • Hi Bridget,
      Thanks for your comment. It’s nice to hear that people enjoy my posts.
      I can’t remember off-hand what the spiky wooden thing is. I will pop back into the museum next week, check it out again and get back to you on that.
      Hope your having a great weekend!
