Draw, design and test out solutions to our Big Draw challenges.
Can you build the highest tower; design a fantastical hat or make a working crane? Be inspired by our historic exhibits and iconic cranes, let your imagination run riot and discover the designer hiding inside you. We will be celebrating the fact that every piece of engineering and manufacturing began with someone drawing an idea. You will be encouraged to draw and explore ideas before you construct your own fantastical creations using a wide range of sometimes unexpected materials.
The theme of the Big Draw is STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths. You can also explore M Shed with our brand new ABC of M Shed and, if that's not enough, design your own M Shed inspired letter board to take home.
Housed within a 1950s dockside transit shed, M Shed is an exciting and innovative museum that tells the story of Bristol.
