Located in a grade II listed warehouse, Gloucester Waterways Museum brings to life the fascinating story of 2,000 miles of waterways and Britain's most inland port. Its collections include objects that have been designated to be of national importance.

Visitors can climb aboard heritage boats in the Waterside Gallery, delve into the fascinating world of Gloucester's Victorian docks and meet the people and wildlife of our wonderful waterways. Kids of all ages will enjoy getting their hands wet and discovering for themselves how canals work.

Educational workshops are available for schools and colleges.

An exciting programme of events runs throughout the year, including talks, exhibitions and craft demonstrations.

The museum has a well stocked shop and refreshment can be found in Coots, the adjoining café/ bar.
