Brunel's SS Great Britain is one of the most important historic ships in the world. When she was launched in 1843 she was called 'the greatest experiment since the Creation'.

By combining size, power and innovative technology, Brunel created a ship that changed history. His vision for the SS Great Britain made her the great-great-grandmother for all modern ships.

Today, Brunel's SS Great Britain is Bristol's Favourite Attraction (TripAdvisor 2020), bringing the experience of Victorian travel vividly to life for visitors, whilst holding the biggest collection of Brunel artefacts and caring for the his ship and legacy.
