  • The National Waterways Museum in Gloucester is a great place to see the history of the waterways in the area. You can keep your children busy with activities and stories. They have a cool little gift shop and Cafe I recommend their cappuccino it's frothy and delicious. You can even take a 45 minute boat tour for £6.50.u
  • This is one of the best museums in Gloucester!!! I really enjoyed it. We also went on the boat tour and it was an amazing experience. When you are finished enjoying the museum you must try the coffee shop!!!
  • Loved it! The boat rides are great value and so much fun. The museum is very nice and has interesting displays.
  • Interesting museum in Gloucester based on two floors with some exhibits outside on quayside too. Boat trips are available too.
  • Interesting exhibits well described and explained, but not as big as I remember it being. It set us off on an afternoon jaunt to find the Purton Hills, which was worth doing.
