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 a much more 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. Gloucester’s award-winning Tourist Information Centre is also located on the ground floor of this beautiful building…
