A great arts venue showing a varied range of modern art. It also has a large cinema/performance space, well stocked bookshop and large bar and restaurant. It’s position in the centre of Bristol’s Harbourside has made it a pivotal component of Bristol’s cultural life.

It is a great place for art exhibits I suppose . Unfortunately the day I visited, most of the exhibition is closed for prep of the upcoming exhibition. So we did not spend much time in this location.Overall the place is clean and relaxing vibe. Very inclusive placr esp for the LGBT community.Great people and friendly.

Threads is a must see exhibition. Diverse, sad and happy in many different ways. Read the women's stories in the tent and listen to the voices.

Wir waren hier zur Austellung Threads. Textilien im Licht der Kunst. Sehr gut kuratiert und auf drei Etagen präsentiert. Das alte Teelager ist in moderne Ausstellungsräume verwandelt worden. Ein Café und ein Buchladen ergänzen das Konzept. Der Buchladen bietet eine gute Auswahl an Büchern zur aktuellen Ausstellung und viele Neuerscheinungen zu Zeitthemen Fotografie und Kunst. Der Eintritt ist kostenfrei. Spenden sind willkommen.

I probably wouldn't love Bristol as much if it wasn't for the Arnolfini! Great museum, very inclusive in both artist selection and curatorial language. A must-see.

The place is nice but for different tastes, colors and the truth is that I didn't like the exhibition that was on at that time (Elias Sime). That doesn't mean that other people who are great admirers of certain modern art might not like it. There was also another, much more modest exhibition of embroidery, which I liked much more. Is free.

One exhibition way too pretentious for its own good. Others have been interesting and better though. Small but free of charge so worth a visit if you’re passing by. Expect some bad smells though. Might have been part of the experience though. It’s that kind of place.

Really great place. Especially impress by the way they want you to enjoy your visit. To the extent of providing yoga mats and ear defenders to help you get immersed in the art. X

I expected a few more displays. It would also have been better to have descriptions next to the displays on what the artist was trying to convey. I understand that most of what people get out of each piece would be different from person to person, but it would be helpful to have a starting point of what the inspiration for creating the piece was in addition to just the title.
