M Shed is located on Bristol’s historic harbourside and reveals the fascinating story of the city. The vibrant museum is the perfect learning destination for your local history curriculum – from chronology and significant Bristol people to Anglo-Saxons and chocolate!

We are proud that M Shed was announced a 2017 winner of the Sandford Award for Heritage Education, an accolade that is valid for five years.
