Brilliant regimental museum. History of the various Gloucestershire regiments clearly presented with lots of actual uniforms and medals. Great for kids with clothes and uniforms for them to dress in. Loved it.

The museum based in Gloucester Docks follows the history of the Glorious Glosters from their earliest formation right up to date. The museum is well laid out and easy to walk around although there are seome narrow passageways and steep staircases due to the museum being in an old warehouse.

A well laid out and presented museum indeed. Very good value if you get the £10 ticket for other Gloucester museums.

what a geat museum. As we get older, we really appreciate what our forces went through in several wars. This museum was a great insight to gallantry and responsibilities on shoulders of so many young men. We enjoyed this visit enormously and would recommend any one young or old to visit this great place.
