Discover: Chocolate

Discover the story of Bristol’s chocolate heritage. Find out about its evolution in the city and unwrap the stories of the people who made it.

This interactive chocolate experience is one of our tastiest school workshops yet!

Children will:

  • Handle and investigate real objects from the city’s former chocolate factories, that are now looked after in the museum’s collections
  • Take part in a role-play activity about life in a Bristol chocolate factory
  • Find out how chocolate was made – from bean to bar!
  • Be inspired by M Shed’s galleries to design their own chocolate bar in a teacher-led activity

Suitable for: Year 3-5
Duration: 1 hour. Plus a teacher-led gallery activity
Group size: Up to 35 pupils – you can book more than one session

We have sessions available from 10.15am. Our teacher-led trail can be completed before or after a workshop session.

Planning on having a picnic as part of your visit? FREE use of our lunch room is included in the cost of your session.
