Gloucester Docks were once the deepest and widest in the world. Today, old dock buildings house musuems, shops and cafes making it a great place to visit for the whole family. And it all starts with ‘new kid on the block’ – the National Waterways Museum, Gloucester!
We say new, but our much-loved Gloucester Waterways Museum has been renovated, refreshed and rebranded thanks to over £1m from the Heritage Lottery Fund and DCMS/Wolfson Museums & Galleries Improvement Fund.
The Grade II listed warehouse hides a marvelous surprise of bright, engaging galleries with stories – or should that seamen’s tall tales – of the communities that lived, and continue to thrive, along on the River Severn, Gloucester & Sharpness Canal and your wider wonderful waterways.
