Children & Families

Ladies and gentlemen, a warm welcome to our BRLSI family page! I am Professor Ichthyosaurus, your companion and guide on all things BRLSI!

The Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, or BRLSI for short is a place where Science, Literature, and Art come together to help people smile and learn cool stuff. Grown -ups can join fantastic lectures for only £3.00 per ticket. People who love books, science, and art can come here to have fun and make friends. Best of all, there are fun and interesting activities for kids in the school holidays.

The really exciting part is, BRLSI has an amazing collection of things from around the world. Treasures from far-off lands that have been collected by enthusiasts, and these are shown in our exhibitions!

Right now, we are holding our ‘Riches of the Earth‘ exhibition. You can see beautiful rocks and minerals, and you can embark on a mystical quest along the dreamy dragon trail and find  hidden mineral treasures!

Monday to Saturday, 10am-4pm: Explore the exhibition and join our Magic Mineral Trail. Get a Dreamy Dragon Sticker when you complete it!


Greetings, my friends! Allow me, Pete the Plesiosaurus, to introduce our Mini Minerals Gallery Guide that accompanies the exhibition.
