Family and educational visits
Explore our exhibits, test your strength, learn about wildlife on the waterways with our wildlife trail, dress up in traditional boaters clothes, beat the clock to load a barge in our interactive game and construct your own bridge.
The National Waterways Museum Gloucester will be closed in January 2022 for essential maintenance. The Canal & River Trust Explorers team is still available for in-person and virtual lessons in your school for your KS1 and KS2 children. Choose from Build a Canal or Build a Crane Workshops.
We also have lots of activities on our website. Take a look at the Learning from Home bundles with themed activities for schools, groups and homeschoolers, the Canal & River Challenge Badge for uniformed groups, Let’s Go Outdoors for ideas to visit your local canal or river and Make and Play for crafts and games.
We are looking forward to seeing you in 2022!
