We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Gloucester Waterways Museum

Family fun and boats galore at the heart of Gloucester's historic docks.

The Gloucester Waterways Museum is now closed for refurbishment and will open again in summer 2016. 

We don't want you to miss out though. During the closure we'll create a number of pop-up museums starting with an information point at the front of our waterway office on Commercial Road throughout November and December.

The information point will sell Santa Cruise tickets and a few items from the shop. You'll also be able to see pictures of what the museum will look like when it's finished.

The information point will open Tuesday – Saturday between 11.00am and 4.00pm plus Sundays during the Santa Cruises.

Santa Cruises will run on 12, 13 & 19-24 December. Tickets are available from the information point in the reception area of the South Wales & Severn Waterway Office on Commercial Road or by telephoning 01452 318201 or 01452 318021.
