In The Museum

Based in the heart of Gloucester, the Hundred Heroines Museum is a contemporary space where we host exhibitions, hold the Heroines Collection, run workshops, screenings, talks, as well as informal gatherings.  We’d love to see you here!

School groups and large parties are warmly welcomed – get in touch to arrange a private visit.

Opening times are 10:30 – 16:00 on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays.  For other days and times by arrangement, simply email to book a slot.
