Welcome to the Museum of Gloucester and the Tourist Information Centre.

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 Archaeology collection includes the world-famous Birdlip Mirror, impressive Roman tombstones and the Gloucester Tables Set, the oldest complete backgammon set in the world.

The museum also has ever-changing exhibitions and events, so keep your eye open for these and much much more.

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

Visit our café, serving a range of tea, coffee and cakes, crisps and biscuits as well as an exciting gift shop full of both historical and local products.

Tourist Information Centre is also located on the ground floor of this beautiful building.
