Housed in the old Llanthony Warehouse in the heart of what once was the bustling Gloucester Docks, the museum will take you on a whole new journey.

Our museum’s new design takes a fresh approach to displaying objects from our designated collection, allowing you to enjoy the fabric of the warehouse itself.

Our galleries have some very hands-on displays (and a few traditional exhibits too). But they all tell the stories of people living and working on the docks - some of them in person on our digital display screens.

Unlimited visits to the museum for 12 months

Your ticket becomes your 'annual pass' and will give you a whole year of access to the museum. The Llanthony Tea Room and the Gift Shop is free to enter without museum entry.
