Bristol’s M Shed museum

A re-used 1950s dockside warehouse, said to have a functionalist purity, the M She Museum has a forward-leaning entrance facade with eye-catching external features such as working dockyard cranes, steam engines and historic boats. Re-roofing involved use of 160mm FOAMGLAS READY BLOCK T4+.

The building, formerly the Bristol Industrial Museum, underwent a full refurbishment and renaming as the ‘M Shed Museum’. The re modelled structure retains many of the features seen on the original harbourside building but with a new atrium which acts as the entrance foyer.
