Housed in the old Llanthony Warehouse in the heart of what once was the bustling Gloucester Docks, the National Waterway Mueum will take you on a whole new journey. The museum is known as the National Waterways Museum (NWM) Gloucester. The sister museum to the National Waterways Museum, Ellesmere Port, together they are jointly responsible for the UK’s unique 'designated collection' of waterways heritage. It was also awarded certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor.
The museum takes a fresh approach to displaying objects from designated collection, allowing you to enjoy the fabric of the warehouse itself. The new galleries have some very hands-on displays and a few traditional exhibits too. They all tell the stories of people living and working on the docks - some of them in person on the digital display screens. You will also discover the stories of the communities that lived and continue to thrive here, with fun, interactive exhibits, café, museum shop and boat trips around the dock.
Take a 'Journey Through Britain' in the award winning National Waterways Museum Gloucester, which tells the 200-year story of inland waterways. Remember - your ticket allows you to return as many times as you like in 12 months.
