we were there at the weekend, visiting families, and the queues were miles long. it would have taken hours to get through. just suggest you get advice from the museum about quiet days/times before you head off.
Went on Thursday. Got there at about 1, queue looked long but in total the wait was about hour and a half. There was an icecream van for refreshments, the queue runs along the side of Browns and there is a side entrance down to the toilets, so all in all not too bad as queues go. Exhibition is fantastic and well worth the wait.
Hi Changing ths subject slightly....I'm taking DS(15) & 3 of his mates to Bristol tomorrow to see Bill Bailey at the Hippodrome We've booked a table for pizza at 5pm before the show, but wondered what we could do between 3pm, when our train gets in,until we eat? I had thought we might 'pop in' to see the Banksy exhibition but having read this thread...maybe not Any ideas welcome!
I was in Bristol a couple of weeks ago and yes the queues certainly did look huge. Loads of people at the bottom of Park St taking photos of the blue paintball splattered picture there too. Maybe they did that instead of queuing for the exhibition? Much as I think the paintings are good, folk make far too big a deal about the geezer.
