M Shed is launched in Bristol

Date Posted: 20/06/2011

Bristol’s new city history museum, M Shed, recently had its official opening. The £27 million development houses 3,000 exhibits across its three main galleries, and features a temporary exhibition space, workshops, a functioning train shed, a learning suite, cafe, book and gift shop.

Among the displays will be models and props from Wallace and Gromit, Curse of the Were Rabbit, donated by Bristol-based Aardman Animations; the original Technics record deck used by members of Bristol band Massive Attack; a ten-metre mural of a fantasy landscape of Bristol by local graffiti artists; documents of the notorious Bristol Bus Boycott, led by a group of Bristol black campaigners; and restored dockside cranes, steam locomotives and harbour boats.
