What’s Here

Located close to Bristol Docks on the River Avon, this museum concentrated on the industrial history of the Bristol area. Among the aviation exhibits were a Bristol Sycamore helicopter and a ‘walk-through’ Concorde engineering mock-up. A large collection of Bristol aero engines were also on show – many restored by the Rolls-Royce Heritage Trust, Bristol Branch.


On Prince’s Warf, south of the A4044 inner ring road.
