Bristol’s flagship museum has been designed to retain the character of the former 1950’s transit shed but with the addition of purpose-built facilities, lighting and AV equipment. Our flexible Harbour View and Waterside Suites take pride of place on the top floor of the Museum with access to the fantastic rooftop terrace. In addition to this our Studios offer a more informal environment for your events, perfect for smaller meetings or syndicate space. Along with our spacious foyers, all of our meeting spaces offer lots of natural daylight and feature spectacular panoramic views over the harbour and cityscape offering your guests the best view in Bristol!

The Waterside Suite is situated on the top floor of M Shed and can hold up to 270 guests for a theatre style conference, 270 for dinner or 240 for a cabaret style event. It has brand new AV and lighting systems and can offer hybrid meetings at request. It also has direct access to your own private Harbourside balcony where you can enjoy a coffee or a snack, get some fresh air, and take in the stunning views of the harbour and beyond.

    I visited with my 3 year old son and he enjoyed a lot of the exhibitions and we learnt more about Bristol's history. The staff were very nice and helpful. Toilets were easy to access and clean. We will be back again soon.

    Excellent free museum with fabulous attempts at both decolonisation and explanation of why Bristolians are so cool: they fight for what is right.

    Lovely place to visit, full of the history of Bristol. Fully wheelchair & pushchair accessible, spread over 2 floors with lifts. Cafe did a great lunch at a great price. Vegan options available. We'll worth a visit, free to get in but a suggested donation of £5 can be given at any of the many donation stations around the museum.

    This is an interesting eclectic museum about the Bristol area, its history, and its people. It is free to visit and includes a cafe, a shop, and a roof terrace with riverside views.
