  • This is a nice little museum with good River Severn history. It's worth a visit and only takes about 45min - 1hr. 
  • The fact that Britain's Waterways played such a big part in our history and the canals have now become an intrinsic part of our leisure industry is fairly well now known. However, it is fascinating to...  more »
  • Spent a pleasant hour wandering through the museum.a very interesting way to learn about our historic waterways,good for children too.

  • The museum is set over 2 floors with additional outside. We found it really interesting to see old film showing the river, canal and Gloucester docks. The museum has a few activities for children and the building has a nice atnosphere. The outside area was disapointing though. It had a train to look at and a view of the docks and the rear of Wetherspoons. Perhaps better outside on a warm day?
  • Used to be a very good museum, but lottery funding and a big refurbishment has ruined it. Two floors with no flow and pointless displays. Staff only in the reception leaning on the desk and ignoring customers.
  • A really interesting museum on something a bit different, it was really informative on the history of the waterways. It's good for kids and adults. There is also a little gift shop downstairs where you can also buy tickets for a bost trip down the river.
  • 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.
  • A great place to visit
