Glenside Hospital Museum is located in Stapleton/Fishponds to the North East of Bristol City and is housed inside the purpose built church which sits in the grounds of the former hospital site. The original asylum buildings are occupied by part of the UWE university campus, and the NHS Blackberry Hill psychiatric hospital which still handles psychiatric care. Neither are open to the public, however the vast impressive size of the site can be appreciated.

The museum itself contains original artifacts and exhibits removed from the hospital buildings during renovations and contributed by families of former employees providing a rich tapestry of information that provides an insight into the history of psychiatric care and medicine from the Middle Ages through to present day, including the inception and construction of the hospital and its various uses as a lunatic asylum, a convalescent hospital for soldiers, and as a psychiatric hospital until 1994.

There are some fascinating exhibits including some of the more macabre aspects of mental health care, but also a positive and delicate approach to understanding life at the hospital for both patients and staff alike. I found this engaging and refreshing and it added a real human touch to understanding mental health care through history and the people involved on all sides.

The staff and volunteers were all welcoming, knowledgable and were very happy to answer questions and discuss aspects of mental health care and it’s history as well as details about the hospital, the buildings and the people involved.

Thoroughly recommended if this subject area interests you.

Thank you so much for your review. If you fancy a return visit we've got a summer art exhibition until the 2nd October 2022. ‘Looking to the Light’ is one of three ground-breaking new exhibitions across the UK inspired by remarkable collections relating to mental health initiated by the national arts charity Outside In. Ten talented artists have taken part in a series of courses to interrogate the psychiatric hospital collection, create new work in response and curate an exhibition at Glenside Hospital Museum. Many aspects of the Museum and its history - from a padded room to use of mosquitoes on treatments - caught the imaginations of Jackie Bennett, Steve Burden, Steven Edgar, George Harding, Jasmine Janiurek, Anna Rathbone, Ally Schooler, Alison Willis, Natasha Harrison and Damien Moran. The project was supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, John Ellerman Foundation and the Art Fund.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write the review. When I first found GHM 10 years ago I thought exactly the same. It was so fascinating I started working there and got a job trying to get rid of the word 'hidden' ! But your are right we still are a hidden gem, more work required!

I have lived in Bristol for over 30 years yet had never heard of this. It is amazing. It has the history of the hospital which has been a mental health facility and a war hospital. There are many detailed exhibits and many fascinating artifacts. Well worth a visit.

A gem of a museum which explores the history of mental health care in Bristol. It's located in an old chapel - now in the grounds of the UWE Glenside Campus but previously the chapel for the Bristol Lunatic Asylum. It contains mental health care memorabilia from across the city which would otherwise probably not been preserved. From lockable boots and guarded forks to patients photographs, to the first ECT machines, Glenside has it all. It includes a collection from Stoke Park (The Dower House - that big yellow building you see from the M32) which was a colony for adults with learning disabilities and an interesting collection from WW1 when Glenside was used as a war hospital.
The museum also includes a selection of puzzles which were designed to test cognitive ability with reproductions available for visitors to try.

Managed to eventually visit this museum all about mental/Psychiatric Health care in Bristol - it bought back many memories as I used to work at the hospital from 1987 to its closure and transfer of patients to the neighbouring hospital

Interesting timelines through the ages from inception to closure and also when it was a war hospital in the old church in the grounds of what is Glenside Campus of UWE

A lot of history in a very small place and also including Stoke Park Hospital (for people with learning difficulties) and I did not have enough time to do it all , so will need to go back at some stage

Infact if you worked at the hospital there are chances that you will bmp into someone you know (or someone at least who knows an connection)

It is on the 48A s route if needed

It is quite small but well organised

Open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10.00 to 12.30 on each occasion

You should allow a couple of hours

I visited with members of my family - 2 of us had worked as nurses at Glenside hospital in the 1970s/early 1980s and another had nursed at Stoke Park. The organisers have been able to include so much detail and exhibits into a small space. We were met by enthusiastic volunteers who were interested to hear our stories about our time at these hospitals. I would strongly recommend a visit to this museum to those who have an interest in the history of mental health through the ages, equally I think that this is of a great museum to those interested in social history.

Wow, what a fascinating evening, saw the talk randomly on my news feed on Facebook.
It’s of interest to my husband and myself due to family connections being rooted in the area so thought we would give it a go.
You never know what’s right on your doorstep but this is a gem. If you are interested because of the area, your a Bristolian, you are or have been in the nursing or caring profession or even if you are interested in your own mental health this is well worth a visit,just to see how far we have come in this area of medicine and care. There is also the history included of the treatment of the wounded from the wars along with wonderful artifacts, photos and memorabilia from the history of the site. Would highly recommend, maybe catch one or their talks which you can find if you search the museum. Great way to spend a couple of hours. An absolute treasure!

Very much appreciate the time you took to give us a review and so pleased you enjoyed the talk. We have a temporary exhibition about a sample of early asylum patients from Dundee, the curator Dr Rab Houston from St Andrews University has offered to fly into Bristol to deliver a talk. Look out for the date on Facebook or our Twitter feed.
