M Shed

M Shed is an exciting and innovative new museum for Bristol that tells the story of the city. It is located on the historic dockside in the heart of the city and has been designed to retain the character of the former 1950s transit shed.

Cod Steaks was appointed to produce 25 hands-on exhibits and models to support key contents and themes within the museum which includes the iconic hot air balloons that float up between floors through the exhibition galleries.

"I just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work you put into the job to make it happen. The balloons (with the incredibly speedy turnaround) have already become an icon in the eyes of the museum staff."
