Attraction Information

The Museum of Gloucester, previously known as Gloucester City Museum and Art Gallery, was recently given a grant to refurbish and reinvent itself. It was well worth it! Housed in a stunning Victorian building in the heart of the City, it contains many items of national and international importance.

Among the spectacular collection are archaeological finds, fine and decorative arts and natural history specimens representing Gloucester's rich heritage.

A visit to the museum will tell you much about the early history of Gloucester. As well as fascinating Roman and Mediaeval displays there are dinosaurs, fossils, paintings, clocks, furniture, the stunning Birdlip Mirror and lots more.

A wide range of exquisite touring exhibitions and an exciting programme of events, hands on activities, are held throughout the year and whether you are a researcher, a professional, an amateur, or an enthusiast about archaeology, fine art, science or history there are plenty of objects in their collection to grab your attention. If you are a visiting parent, grand parent or a child of any age, there is always something to do including interactive and other hands on activities.
