National Waterways Museum at Gloucester online: information and bookings

The National Waterways Museum in Gloucester, (part of The Waterways Trust) is housed in a splendid Victorian warehouse at the historic Gloucester Docks.

Located within the beautiful English county of Gloucestershire, the museum charts the fascinating story of Britain's canals through a special collection which has been designated as being 'of National Importance'.

We concentrate on providing fascinating 'hands on' displays covering a whole range of waterways related topics. Enter through a replica lock chamber, complete with running water, as exhibits, interactive computers and videos help give you a taste of what it was like to live and work on the waterways.

Our historic boat collection includes narrowboats, river barges, canal and river tugs, as well as a steam powered dredger. There is also a steam crane and heavy oil engine in the setting of a canal repair yard, complete with working machine shop, forge and weighbridge.
