Went on a wet day and it was packed but you could still get to look at things. I took 2 kids 6 and 3 and they liked the interactive stuff and sitting on a old bus and in the air raid shelter. We did not get to see it all so will be back. There was a lovely sitting... More

Went with my partner to the M Shed to look at the Aardman Wallace and Gromit 25th anniversary exhibition designed by Codsteaks. I have been to the M Shed before. Exhibition was well thought through great for all ages and their staff are nice and friendly. A great day had, and was good value for money.

What I like about the M Shed is the creative way that it tells the story of the history of Bristol both in terms of key themes that have influenced the city (slavery, WW2) and also the different parts of the city who all have their own area n the museum with their own story. The bus, air raid shelter,... More

We travelled to the M shed for the gromit exhibition. We must say the exhibition on the ground and first floor was much more interactive for the children, kept the kids entertained and was very educational and interesting. We certainly learnt a lot from this exhibition. We found the gromit exhibition poor in comparison which lacked interaction but did have... More

We were not planning a visit to M Shed but happened upon it on a walk along the riverside. It was a well thought out exhibition and free (donations suggested). It was interesting and covered a wide range of subjects about Bristol.

This is a free museum, with admission payable for special exhibits. The free museum has a real mix of displays and features; split between local area history, and the products from that part of Bristol. Ranging from Bristol buses and bicycles to aircraft and Anderson shelters. Well documented and labelled the museum is great draw for people of all ages.... More

We visited the Gromit exhibition. It is a pay to enter event, but worth the money. There are several sets and it has lots of facts, though really aimed at a younger generation. Best time to visit is late afternoon.

Visited on recommendation from hotel. Wallace and Gromit exhibition was superb. Our eight year old was fascinated and we spent hours there. Think the exhibition finishes shortly so check.

We've been meaning to visit the M Shed in Bristol for ages. With our grandchildren in tow we eventually made it last week. And it was well worth the visit. We all loved it, with so many interesting things to see on life in Bristol past and present. The Wallace and Gromit exhibition was the icing on the cake. Absolutely... More

I am a bristolian who lives in the midlands and had not seen the MShed before, my brother suggested the kids might like it and also that the parking next to it is cheap for the city centre. At first i was a bit put off by the way things from different eras had been put together but actually this... More
