A brief Backstory
The museum tells the story of the city’s origins as a Roman settlement and its subsequent development through the Dark Ages, Medieval period and beyond.
Situated in a fine Victorian building in the city centre, the museum also houses a significant collection of art, including paintings by Richard Wilson and Thomas Gainsborough, and an archaeology collection including the world-famous Birdlip Mirror, Roman tombstones and city walls plus the Gloucester Tables Set, the oldest complete backgammon set in the world.
