Easter Sunday visit to The MSHED! (Bristol)

Hello everyone, I hope your all having a lovely easter? 

Well today in true bank holiday style it rained lol! So we decided to check out the Mshed in Bristol. 
The Mshed is a museum based in the centre of Bristol and it is all about the history of Bristol itself!

"For the first time, Bristol has a museum dedicated to telling the amazing history of the city, through the objects and stories of the people who have made the city what it is today.
Located on the historic dockside, Bristol's flagship museum has been designed to retain the unique character of the former 1950s transit shed.
Three galleries reveal the fascinating story of the city and its unique place in the world. From prehistoric times to the present day, explore the history of Bristol through the objects and stories of the people who made the city what it is today.
See amazing film and photographs, listen to moving personal stories, encounter rare and quirky objects and add your own memories of the city through the interactive displays."
With James only being 4 and a half I wasn't sure how much he would enjoy it but he loved it! There was plenty for him to at and plenty of interactive screens all at kiddy friendly level so easy for little ones to use. 

There were also plenty of interactive displays including colouring, dressing up and some displays you could use to show how they work!

We saw displays on different types of transport...

Types of children's toys that children would have played with many years ago...

And even some interesting outfits from the past... 

We had lots of fun looking around and finding put about Bristol past and we would definitely recommend checking it out if you are ever in the area.
Entry is FREE and there is lots of parking (pay and display carpark) just outside of the museum itself.
