The rich heritage of South Gloucestershire comprises community museums, industrial heritage centres, historic houses, sites and gardens which celebrate the diverse industrial and historic area renowned for its beautiful countryside. The museums, often managed by local volunteers, hold collections and do important work preserving the history of the area and are particularly appealing to local people and specialist groups. You can find out about treasures, talks and lectures, exhibitions, events and activities by visiting the South Gloucestershire Council website to see the list of local museums and attractions.
