We went here to help my daughter with her homework and I was amazed by the content, From the outside it looks small but they have used the space well and there is a complete history inside.

Ideal place to visit to learn about the historic Gloucestershire regiments, past and present. Plenty of displays of figures, uniforms, medals, etc. The attraction is situated inside of what was a warehouse, so there are stairs throughout the attraction.

The museum is situated in the restored docks area, and provides welcome culture in this area as a counterpoint to the shopping and restaurants. Only £4 to get in and it takes an hour or two to wander around. The history of this proud regiment...More
