  • Loved it, free museum about mental health in early 1900's onwards , well worth a visit but very limited opening a few days only a week, check their website for opening times
  • Very interesting little gem that is hidden away in the old church in the grounds of what used to be Glenside Hospital (Lunatic Asylum or psychiatric Hospital) Opening hours are limited and currently as follows Wednesdays 10.00 am to 12.30 pm Saturdays 10.00 to 12.30 pm (other times by arrangement) On a bus route (no 48A - City Centre to UWE Frenchay) The main site is now run by UWE Campus This is a free museum It has a lot of interesting things in a very small amount of space and in order and it covers when it was Beaufort War Hospital and also Stoke Park Hospital (hospital for people with learning difficulties) You will need at least 2 hours and as I used to work there I did meet someone else that worked there so I did not finish it so I will have to go back It covers all the history and a lot more Well worth a visit
