Wallace & Gromit from the drawing board

Immerse yourself in the story making process of Aardman’s award-winning Wallace & Gromit films in this cracking new summer exhibition!

Wander through a home developed by Aardman, especially for M Shed, and experience the quirky and the unexpected. Find out how the funny storylines are created, what inspires their Bristol based makers and see how the much loved characters have developed over time.

Marvel at instantly recognisable film sets, Nick Park’s notebook and see the actual ‘rocket’ from a Grand Day Out. Scribble and sketch your own story in the Dining Room.

Spark your inventive flair as you search for museum objects and contraptions. Don’t miss the rare chance to see a real Oscar® and don’t leave without having your photo taken next to the famous comedy duo… say cheese!

Come and celebrate the stories and creative talent behind Wallace & Gromit on the 25th anniversary of their first ever film release.


Pop by M Shop on the ground floor for special Aardman souvenirs to take home.

The exhibition is supported by a programme of events and activities. See what’s on for details.
