New Brunel museum
A new museum dedicated to the life and achievements of iconic engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel will be part of a major redevelopment of Bristol’s Floating Harbour area. Located in buildings alongside Brunel’s ss Great Britain, the state-of-the-art museum will preserve Brunel’s legacy and inspire future engineers and innovators through its collection of never-seen-before possessions and artefacts, from the engineer’s detailed childhood drawings to his cigar case. Brunel’s Drawing Office is also being restored as part of the project. SS Great Britain will be fully open throughout the redevelopment’s build phase.
