Housed in the old Llanthony Warehouse in the heart of what once was the bustling Gloucester Docks, our museum’s new design takes a fresh approach to displaying objects from our designated collection, allowing you to enjoy the fabric of the warehouse itself.
Our new galleries have some very hands-on displays (and a few traditional exhibits too). But they all tell the stories of people living and working on the docks - some of them in person on our digital display screens. It's all thanks to some timely funding...
