M Shed is a museum located in Bristol, England. It is dedicated to the history and culture of the city, and its name is derived from the building's original use as a transit shed for goods arriving by ship at Bristol's historic docks.
The museum's collection includes over 3,000 objects, ranging from industrial machinery and vehicles to personal items and artworks. The exhibits are arranged thematically, with displays covering topics such as Bristol's maritime heritage, the city's role in the slave trade, and the experiences of local people during World War II.
M Shed also features a number of interactive displays and multimedia installations, allowing visitors to explore the exhibits in greater depth. In addition to its permanent collections, the museum hosts temporary exhibitions and a range of events throughout the year, including talks, workshops, and performances.
The museum is housed in a Grade II listed building on the Harbourside, which has undergone extensive renovation and redevelopment in recent years. Alongside the museum, the building now also houses a café, a shop, and a number of community spaces.
