Found within the city of Gloucester is an internationally important collection of treasures of over 750,000 objects…

The Museum of Gloucester tells the story of the city’s origins as a Roman settlement and its subsequent development through the Dark Ages and Medieval period and beyond. This fine Victorian building also has a significant collection of art and the Archaeology collection includes the world-famous Birdlip Mirror, impressive Roman tombstones and the Gloucester Tables Set, the oldest complete backgammon set in the world.

Gloucester River of Hope is inspired by the River of Hope project celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The River of Hope is an arts-based learning project linking schools around the world through the study of rivers.
