A story of waterways

Housed in a warehouse at the heart of Gloucester’s fine Victorian docks, Gloucester Waterways Museum tells the story of our wonderful canals and rivers.

You can climb aboard historic boats, enjoy hands-on fun, watch archive films and browse galleries rich in canal heritage and stories.
