“Death: The Human Experience” at the Bristol Museum includes hundreds of incredibly diverse objects – from a Ghanaian fantasy coffin to a Victorian mourning dress – reveal captivating stories from cultures across the world, from the earliest human societies to the modern day.
The exhibition encourages you to consider ethical issues, different attitudes to death and how different cultures have dealt with the end of life. As a society we are reluctant to talk about death and dying. death: the human experience is about helping to start that conversation.
