Owner description: Following our recent refit we're delighted to announce that we are open again. The museum celebrates the role Gloucester Docks and the local canal network had in transporting goods to the industrial Midlands. Our new bright and engaging galleries will showcase the uniqueness of the River Severn and Gloucester & Sharpness Canal. Daily Canal Cruises available. Queen Boadicea II will take you on a 45 minute trip along the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal with live commentary. Trips run every weekend and every day during the school holidays.

“Great museum”
Reviewed 22 September 2011

The museum is located over 3 floors of a warehouse on Gloucester docks. It gives a real insight into the canals of Britain and the people who lived and worked on them. On the ground floor there are lots of interactive activities. Don't miss the trip down the canal nor going on the static boats which are moored alongside in the docks. Entrance fee was very reasonable.
