This museum is dedicated to the memory of all those who have served their country as Soldiers of Gloucestershire

The Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum is located in Gloucester’s Historic Docks. We reopened in April 2014 after a significant Heritage Lottery funded refurbishment. Come and discover the lives of Gloucestershire soldiers from the last 300 years. Try on Army uniforms, look into a First World War trench, learn about medals and how soldiers won them through history with our interactive displays. Do you know how the Gloucestershire Regiment won the Back Badge? See how the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars survived fighting in the desert? Have you felt how heavy a Rifleman’s rucksack is? With changing exhibitions and our Soldiers of the Month display, there is always something new to see. There is plenty for the whole family to do, children's games, uniforms to try on plus a free quiz. Our story begins in 1694, travels through the Napoleonic Wars, the Age of Empire, Worlds Wars, Korea and right up to modern day conflicts. Come and discover the stories of twelve generations of Gloucestershire soldiers.
