Gloucester Waterways Museum

A canal boat on the water next to a museum building

    • The award-winning Gloucester Waterways Museum (part of The Waterways Trust) is housed in a splendid Victorian warehouse at the historic Gloucester Docks. Located within the beautiful English county of Gloucestershire, the museum charts the fascinating story of Britain's canals through a special Designated Collection of national importance. We concentrate on providing interactive and hands on displays covering a whole range of waterways related topics. Take the challenge of the "replica lock chamber", complete with running water, get on board one of our historic boats, enjoy our exhibits. Imagine what it was like to live and work on the waterways. Our historic boat collection includes narrowboats, river barges, canal and river tugs, as well as a steam powered dredger. River and canal cruises run every day from April to end of December.
