Found within the City of Gloucester is an internationally important collection of treasures of over 750,000 objects...

The Museum of Gloucester tells the story of the city’s origins as a Roman settlement and its subsequent development through the Dark Ages and Medieval period. This fine Victorian building also has a significant collection of art including paintings by Richard Wilson, Thomas Gainsborough, John Atkinson Grimshaw and Thomas Dibdin.

The museum features ground floor exhibitions and exhibits that promise a much more interactive experience. Highlights include a Roman kitchen playhouse and medieval street. Part of the original Roman wall can also be viewed within the museum. 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.

Feel free to visit our self-service café, serving tea, coffee and cakes, crisps and biscuits. We also have an exciting gift shop full of historical and local products. The museum has ever-changing exhibitions and events, so keep your eye open for these and much, much more...
