Gloucester Waterways Museum
Family fun and boats galore at the heart of Gloucester's historic docks.
Housed in a warehouse at the heart of Gloucester's fine Victorian Docks, Gloucester Waterways Museum tells the story of our wonderful canals and rivers. Climb aboard historic boats, enjoy hands-on fun, watch archive films and browse galleries rich in canal heritage. You could even take a boat trip along the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal or River Severn.
Children of all ages will love getting their hands wet in our interactive canal lock exhibit and dressing up as waterways children as they explore the Museum.
