M Shed’s ancestor was the much-loved Bristol Industrial Museum which was open from 1974 – 2006.
For 32 years the Industrial Museum was the key attraction on Bristol’s harbourside. Over 150,000 visitors a year came to learn about the industrial and maritime history of the city.
M Shed is an exciting and innovative museum, telling the story of our city and changing perceptions of what it has meant to live here over the centuries.
The M Shed explores the city’s history from prehistoric times to the 21st century. Stories about the city and its people have been discovered through working with experts and communities across the city – a process that will continue for the life of the museum. Rich collections of objects, art and archives also play an important part in bringing stories to life.
