About visiting

We are a volunteer-led charitable trust. Our building is on four floors without space for a lift. Our ability to show the Collection in its entirety is limited by both space and available volunteers. We therefore operate currently as per the visitor information below.

 Opening times

Design Icons: Made in Bristol which runs from Saturday 9 September – Sunday 5 November 2023 – opening times will be:
Wednesdays 13:00-16:00
Fridays 12:00-19:00
Saturdays 11:00-17:00
Sundays 11:00-15:00 (10 Sept and 5 November only, i.e. the first and last Sunday of the exhibition)

 Entry to exhibitions

Entry to Design Icons: Made in Bristol is £3 per head and free for Friends. Cash or card donations to our charity are very welcome.


Car: Trenchard Street car park is 5 minutes’ walk away.

Bus/train: Many buses stop at the top of Park Street, 1 minute’s walk away:  the 8 connects with Bristol Temple Meads railway station.

 To view full collection

Find out about our Curator’s tours. Alternatively, a guided tour of the full collection by the Curator can be arranged for groups of up to 10 people, with a charge of £15 per person (subject to a minimum charge of £60) – it would make a great birthday celebration. Please complete the form below to find out about arranging a group tour.


Please note that the Collection is housed in a narrow building on four floors without a lift. The ground floor houses the Stradling Gallery and is fully accessible by wheelchair but we regret that there is no wheelchair-accessible toilet.
