On 18 March 2016 we opened our Visitor Centre and, just over 6 months later, we are delighted to share with you that over 40,000 people have visited. In this time we have organised visits and tours for schools and children’s centres from across Bristol; scouting organisations and groups for young people; and special interest and social clubs. Our wonderful volunteers have given over 2,800 hours of their time in the last 6 months to help us welcome visitors from across Bristol, the country and the world. We could not have done this without the support of our amazing funders: Heritage Lottery Fund, Association of Independent Museums Biffa Award, Wolfson Foundation, Garfield Weston Foundation, Headley Trust, Pilgrim Trust, J Paul Getty Foundation and many more.
