Visited several times with family and school children. Excellent day out. Interesting, inspiring and informative. Staff are great and workshop was brilliantly thought through for my class of 6 year olds but would suit many ages.

Open day - trip round the yard
Dec 2020
Spoke to Brunel - he was brilliant. Really enjoyed a free visit around the yard today (ship closed due to Covid). Recommend it if you are passing. See if you can ask Brunel some tricky questions - his knowledge is amazing.

Excellent attraction
Oct 2020 • Family
We spent 2 hours on-site going around a well laid out, very informative, Covid friendly attraction. The story of the ship is fascinating and the actual ship has been beautifully restored. The volunteers on-site were great, their enthusiasm for the ship is so obvious when you speak to them. The only slight let down was our visit to the on-site cafe. The doors were left open and birds were flying in constantly. The member of staff who was working in the cafe was unfortunately not interested in closing the doors. We were uncomfortable eating in the cafe because of this and decided to eat elsewhere.

You mustn’t miss this if visiting the city...
Sep 2020 • Couples
We visited this magnificent ship after booking a specific date & time online. A short queue once we arrived to have our tickets checked & enter the museum. We’d expected it to be interesting & it definitely was, absolutely fascinating! Looking around both the outside of the ship, the upper deck & then the lowers decks was fab, then going below the sea level into the dry dock was the so,so interesting. There were lots of really helpful staff about, some in period costume, if you wanted to ask questions. Be aware the dry dock is kept at a very high temperature & certain humidity to help preserve the ship so it could be unpleasant for people with health conditions.

Really interesting and well laid out tour, with lots to see and learn about apart from just the ship. Guides were really informative and knowledgeable!

Fantastic! A fab day out
Aug 2020
Very engaging attraction, stuffed with interesting information and interactive exhibits. I am in my 30's and I think I had more fun than most of the kids there. I will be sure to return if I find friends who haven't been.

Fantastic historical place
Oct 2020
The weather wasn't brilliant on the day we visited, but that didn't matter as there is plenty to see under cover. The history behind this ship is amazing. There is so much information and the displays are all really well thought out. It certainly isn't a boring museum. The Dockyard cafe was a welcome refuge from the rain too.

SS Great Britain is great
Oct 2020
This steam ship has had some career! Come along and learn all about it in this fantastic museum and then step aboard to see, hear and smell what it was like in her heyday. The section about IBK was also superb.
