  • Great place to see a bit of local history. Good value for money and really interesting to see how the docks and waterways were so beneficial to the early Gloucester economy. Not far from the quays shopping centre either.

  • One room good for a 4 year old. St.Helens glass museum is better. Staff dressed as pirates but not very helpful.
