M Shed is a museum dedicated to telling the amazing history of the city of Bristol, through the objects and stories of the people who have made the city what it is today.

Located on the historic dockside, M Shed is housed in a former 1950s transit shed, and the museum is designed to retain the building's unique character. Three galleries reveal the fascinating story of the city and its unique place in the world, taking visitors from prehistoric times through to the present day.

See amazing film and photographs, listen to moving personal stories, encounter rare and quirky objects and add your own memories of the city through the interactive displays.

M Shed was nominated for The Art Fund Prize 2012.
