Gloucester City Museum and Art Gallery



Gloucester City Museum and Art Gallery is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.  Housed in a stunning Victorian building in the heart of the City, it contains many items of national and international importance.


Among the spectacular collection are archaeological finds, fine and decorative arts and natural history specimens representing Gloucester’s rich heritage. A visit to the museum will tell you much about the early history of Gloucester. As well as fascinating Roman and Mediaeval displays there are dinosaurs, fossils, paintings, clocks, furniture, the stunning Birdlip Mirror and lots more.


A wide range of exquisite touring exhibitions and an exciting programme of events and hands-on activities are held throughout the year.  Whether you are a researcher, a professional, an amateur, or an enthusiast about archaeology, fine art, science or history there are plenty of objects in our collection to grab your attention. If you are a visiting parent, grandparent or a child of any age, there is always something to do including interactive and other hands-on activities.


Absolutely everybody is welcome to all the workshops, events and activities held at Gloucester City Museum & Art Gallery. If there is anything that we can do for you or your children to help you participate fully in our activities please let us know – we are more than happy to help.
