Historic Gloucester... in LEGO® at the Museum of Gloucester

See Gloucester in all its former glory, made entirely out of LEGO®, at the Museum of Gloucester this October 2022.

Whether you're a LEGO® lover or a history buff, you won't want to miss the chance to see Historic Gloucester... in LEGO® at the Museum of Gloucester from Saturday 22 to Sunday 30 October 2022.

Visitors to the museum can marvel at three incredible models of The Roman Forum, Gloucester's lost 'Foreign Bridge' and Westgate Street. 

Created in the kind of detail that's usually only seen on LEGO Masters, ​the models show a bustling Westgate Street as it was in the medieval era, complete with horse-drawn carriages and lots of LEGO® minifigures in historic dress, along with a recreation of the 'Foreign Bridge', which is now buried underground and the former Roman Forum, which is believed to have been on Southgate Street. 

The hugely popular models were previously on display at the Folk of Gloucester museum in July and August 2022, with the Museum of Gloucester providing another chance to see them as part of Gloucester History Festival

Historic Gloucester... in LEGO® is free to attend, with the museum encouraging visitors to make a donation in exchange for admission, to help it continue its important work preserving Gloucester's rich history.

There's also four one-hour LEGO® building workshops taking place on Sunday 30 October 2022 at 10am, 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3pm, where kids can try boat building in the morning sessions, creating models to tie in with the museum's Titanic: Honour and Glory exhibition; and Roman mosaics in the afternoon - with workshop tickets costing £5 each or £17.50 for a family of up to four.
