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

National Waterways Museum Gloucester

Gloucester Docks were once the deepest and widest in the world. Today, old dock buildings house museums, shops and cafes making it a great place to visit for the whole family.

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 marvellous surprise of bright, engaging galleries with stories of the communities that lived, and continue to thrive, along on the River Severn, Gloucester & Sharpness Canal and your wider wonderful waterways.

To help plan your day, our admission and boat trip prices are listed here.
