The Museum of Gloucester is home to an internationally important collection of treasures, comprised of nearly one million objects!

Open Mondays to Saturdays, from 10am to 5pm, general admission is free of charge and there is regularly changing exhibitions and events scheduled throughout the year.

Housed in a fine Victorian building on Brunswick Road in the centre of the city, The Museum of Gloucester tells the story of Gloucester’s origins as a Roman settlement and its development through the Dark Ages and Medieval period through to modern day.

The Museum of Gloucester features two floors of exhibitions and interactive experiences, including a Roman kitchen playhouse, a medieval street and part of the original Roman wall.

The Archaeology collection includes the world-famous Birdlip Mirror, impressive Roman tombstones and the Gloucester Tables Set – the oldest complete backgammon set in the world.

Plus, the Museum of Gloucester has a significant collection of art including paintings by Richard Wilson, Thomas Gainsborough, John Atkinson Grimshaw and Thomas Dibdin.

Home to the Gloucester Tourist Information Service, there is also a self-service café, a gift shop full of local products, as well as education and conference facilities at the Museum of Gloucester.
