What's on


We have two exhibitions on at the Museum of Gloucester:

Migrations: Masterworks from the Ben Uri Collection

Ben Uri is delighted to be working in partnership with Gloucestershire Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers (GARAS), The Museum of Gloucester and Gloucester City Council to present the exhibition Migrations: Masterworks from the Ben Uri Collection. This important exhibition marks two significant anniversaries: the twentieth year of refugee organisation GARAS and the introduction of the Kindertransport which, between December 1938 and September 1939, brought some 10,000 Jewish refugee children to Britain.
