Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum Reviews
Five stars if you are into history. Still well worth a visit anyway. Very good exhibits, recreations. Very informative. Very close to the Quays shopping centre. Quite accessible. more »
What a lovely little museum. My 11yr old loved it! Definately worth a visit. Really interesting and informative. Great little cafe and gift shop. Staff are super friendly and helpful. more »
Fascinating history of the Regiment. Interactive information screens and a dressing up area with games. Very useful folding stools available. Friendly staff, lovely hot chocolate in Cafe and well stocked shop.
I visited here with my little lad. We got a great groupon offer which made this a cheap day out. It was great to pass the time with and my lad enjoyed looking at the the machine guns and soldiers outfits. The spy trail was fab and interactive and he loved the prizes at the end. Easy to get to and a little gem to pass the time. Its not overly big but we spent good hour or so here
