About us

Photo from our Bristol Museum & Art Gallery Shop in Bristol

Our online shop helps school children, tourists and local people with taking a little bit of Bristol and our world class collection home with them. Unlike nearby competitors, our shop includes products that are unique from our own collection and exhibitions. If you'd prefer to see our shops in person we'd love you to come and visit us on the ground floor at M Shed and Bristol Museum & Art Gallery.

Profits from our shops help support our museum service.

If you can't find what you like or need any help please call us between 10am - 5pm on 0117 9223650 museumretail@bristol.gov.uk
