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.

I looked around the ground floor exhibit and there was loads to read and it was interactive, this so beats manchesters football museum. . The hightlight of my... More

We've already both been to and reviewed M shed before and this time we did not visit the main exhibition but instead opted to take a look at the latest short term exhibit which was called "Wallace and Gromit from the Drawing Board" The title is a bit of a giveaway and as you would expect it is a series...

If you want to visit a place in Bristol that will not cost you anything but give you a great insight to our city then the "M" Shed is the place to go. It has everything for adult to child and a cafe. Once you have visited why not take a walk along the old docks and take in the... More

This is a really nice museum for anyone who likes history and Bristol, lots of things to see and the current Wallace & Gromit exhibition is very good, too. I particularly liked the section on political Bristol and the old bus, but the views from the roof are great, as well. Excellent for free entry.
