Aerospace Bristol reviews
My pals and I spent a very enjoyable few hours at the museum recently and amazingly it was virtually empty so we had plenty of time to explore the exhibits. Concorde was the star attraction of course.... more »

We had a great day here ( well 4.5 hours ).... What a fabulous, well planned out, clean, informative display. Concorde was fantastic. The staff overall were exceptionally polite and helpful and the food in the cafe was very reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. I had the chicken burger in the black bun. Never had a black bun before, different and delicious..... Felt very welcomed and would happily go back. Well worth a visit. Ticket lasts for 12 months as well....
There's so much to study in the range of history & science they cover (engineering & social history) that we've visited 4 afternoons on the annual ticket. Good coffee & cakes in large cafe, and enjoyable basic lunches too. Exciting to climb inside the original Concord and lots of hands-on science & engineering projects for kids (but sadly many not working). I loved the social history - women entering the workforce, trades unions, cold war mentality, etc, while my husband loved all the planes and their engines. We both liked the beautiful Bristol car and local tram as well - there's a whole lot there!
