Minibus drop offs
Groups who need to get as close as possible to the entrance may be dropped off on the forecourt, but please note this should be by prior appointment by contacting our Visitor Experience Manager on 0117 906 7602.

Improve your visitor experience with the Smartify app
We're always thinking of ways we can make our galleries safer and more accessible. One of the ways you can improve your museum experience and also make social distancing easier is by downloading Smartify before your visit. When you get here, hold your phone up to an artwork. The app will recognise the image and you can read about it on your phone.
Please ask a member of staff or volunteer in the gallery to show you where the Smartify labels are located.
In addition to this, audio guides are available through the app for many of our exhibitions (please check the exhibition web page for audio guide availability).
You can also save your favourite artworks on Smartify, allowing you to go back and look at them after your visit. Download the app today.
Spicer+Cole at the RWA serve fresh food and coffee in our new larger cafe space, with both indoor and outdoor seating.
