Gloucester Historical Society's Museum is open for business, adhering to COVID plan rules.

The museum has been closed to the public for almost 12 months. Over this period some of our wonderful museum volunteers have become unavailable for a variety of reasons.

As a result of insufficient numbers the museum will not be opening on Saturdays at this stage.

Opening hours have been reduced to two days per week - Tuesdays and Thursdays 10.30am to 1.30pm.

Arrangements can be made for family research at other times by appointment.

New members are always welcome.

Even if history isn't your first love but you have a "spare" three hours a month you may like to volunteer for museum duties.

It's not hard work but usually interesting and fun to welcome guests. Contact the museum if you are interested or available, we would love to hear from you.

Our newest acquisition is a large collection of Anzac Biscuit Tins. A big thank you to John and Kay Battle for this generous display on show among the war history.
