Housed in the old Llanthony Warehouse in the heart of what once was the bustling Gloucester Docks, the museum will take you on a whole new journey, charting the 200-year history of the docks and the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal.

Things to do
The Grade II listed grain warehouse has been renovated, refreshed and rebranded thanks to over £1m from the Heritage Lottery Fund and DCMS/Wolfson Museums & Galleries Improvement Fund.
With fun, interactive exhibits, café and museum shop you'll discover the stories of the communities that lived and continue to thrive here. Remember, your ticket allows you to return as many times as you like in 12 months.
An urban environment may not seem a likely place for wildlife but why not investigate wildlife habitats with a difference with our fun wildlife trail? Walk around the docks - plenty of bird life to enjoy.
