Princes Wharf, Wapping Road, Bristol, BS1 4RN.
The 'M Shed' has replaced Bristol Industrial Museum.
There are many items on display relating to aspects of Bristol's people and the city's history.
Bristol had a proud industrial heritage, but visitors will find relatively few local industrial artefacts in the open displays. The aerospace diplay in the former Industrial Museum provided a fitting tribute to the area's skills, but this has been discarded, and replaced by confusing jumble of artefacts in a glass tank.
Fortunately, the Industrial Museum had acquired an important collection of local industrial artefacts, and numerous items are stored on site in the reserve collection. Excellent 'Behind the Scenes' tours are available at certain times, currently five days a week. See relevant web page for details
