Palestine Museum

A permanent exhibition dedicated to the Palestinian cause and the strong connections that Bristol has with the country

  • Heritage
  • Museums

Nestled comfortably in the heart of Bristol’s Old City, opened in 2013 and run entirely by volunteers, the museum takes you on a journey through the history of Palestine, from the late 19th century through to current day events.

The Museum aims to educate visitors about the history of the Palestinian people, heritage, culture and political life, and contains stunning photographs, clothing, exhibits and a shop. The shop offers an insight into the textures and flavours of Palestine, with a wide range of Palestinian goods for sale.

Regular events include talks from guest speakers, social gatherings and film evenings. They are open to all and are usually free with a chance to donate.

The Palestine museum is free to everyone and is open on weekends.
