About Museum of Gloucester

Our organisation empowers the local community to care for and value the collections held at the Museum of Gloucester.

The Museum of Gloucester tells the story of Gloucester’s origins as a Roman settlement and its subsequent development through the Dark Ages and Medieval period.

Housed in a fine Victorian building on Brunswick Road, the Museum is home to a collection of over 750,000 objects of international importance as well as a significant gallery of paintings by famous artists including Richard Wilson, Thomas Gainsborough, John Atkinson Grimshaw and Thomas Dibdin.
The museum has ever-changing exhibitions and events, 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.
