Questions… 

Is it really for the whole family? 

Yes!   

How do I get to the Museum of Gloucester? 

 We are right next to the Library and Boots on Brunswick Road. 

 

What about access? 

The building is fully accessible. 

We aim to welcome children with SEND, so please contact us if you have any concerns.  

Do I need to sign up everyone in the family who is coming, or just my child? 

We really need to know exactly who is coming e.g school children, younger siblings, one or both parents, so that we can ensure that there is enough food, seating and craft materials.  If you have any difficulties with the sign-up process, please contact us on the details below. 

 

My family does not celebrate Christmas: can we still come? 

Yes.  This is not about Christmas but explores the history of Gloucester. We welcome and respect families from all backgrounds.
