Offering fun and interactive exhibits within its historic location at Gloucester Docks, the National Waterways Museum also gives guests the chance to get on the water and enjoy a 45-minute boat trip along the Gloucester and the Sharpness Canal, aboard the Queen Boadicea II.
There are picnic benches to enjoy a bite to eat outside in the sunshine while watching the boats go by, as well as a tea room serving a variety of tasty treats.
2024, a new more flexible range of prices, with day and annual
tickets on offer, has been introduced. The new museum ticket prices are split into two categories.
Museum day tickets cost £10 for adults; £6 for children aged between five to 16; fours and under go free; £9 for concessions; £25 for a family of two adults and two children.
Museum annual passes cost £15 for adults; £8 for children aged between five to 16; fours and under go free; £13.50 for concessions; £37 for a family of two adults and two children.
The annual pass allows you to visit the museum as many times as you like for 12 months to make full use of the play areas, holiday drop-in activities, exhibitions, and the opportunity to book special events.
Please note that during Gloucester Tall Ships Festival, museum entry is only possible with a Tall Ships ticket.
