Took two grandchildren aged 4 and 3. They spent at least An hour jumping on and off and running up and down the stairs and ringing the bell. They were worn out. Went for lunch and then they asked to go back again. Free entry and good cafe. Very interesting exhibits for grow ups too, about bristol through the ages,... More

The best part about the M Shed is that it's free! I wouldn't have been happy if I'd paid as it was unimpressive. Found myself getting very bored, it needs more exciting exhibits and it's not very well set out. We sadly had more fun waving at the seagull sat outside the window :/ However I think it's great for... More

Our trip to the Mshed Was educational to US students to know what happened. In past about great Britain people, historic events. Like World war 2 when the people are bidding for the Germans in their Garden To avoid Being shot by the Germans. The museum was helpful and we learned about the events happened in the past. We all...

We were keen to get some of the Bristol Wallace & Gromit experience and we were pleased to discover an exhibition dedicated to the intrepid duo in the M Shed. Located on the top floor, this exhibition is rather modest but captures the essence of the W & G mood. The mock ups of some of the sets are really... More

Excellent - free entry lots to see and do but take change for the car park or pay for your space via text. Still find the outside grubby looking and more could be done to brighten up the place.

The main museum is free but there is a charge of the W&G exhibition - £14.95 for a family ticket. You'll be in and out in under an hour but it is worth going to see particularly if you are interested in how things come together. There are doors to open and buttons to press but to get the most...

Hi Adrian, Sorry to hear you aren't so keen on the new museum. If you are more interested in the industrial side of things we do tours of our stores that contain a lot of the large industrial objects that aren't currently on display. We do these tours five times a week so give us a call at 0117 352... More

We had a great afternoon wandering around the museum, very we'll out together and lots to read. We saw the exhibition of Wallace & Gromit. Fantastic. We'll presented and great to get up close. The view from the top floor is a must see.
