Call the mercenaries or call them soldiers. Whatever- just make sure they're on your side when there is conflict. This museum gives a wonderful insight into the military history of the Gurkha's from the end of the 19th century to the present time. If you are interested in military museums make sure you visit this one.

There is quite a lot to see about tge Gurkha Regiment and how they have supported the British army for such a long time. The Staff at the museum are both helpful and know everything you may wish to... More

We visited as my father fought with the Gurkhas in Burma so we were very interested in their history. It is a small museum and unless you have a particular interest in the history of the Gurkhas would not take long to go round.

We visited after the cathedral & the Great Hall, but really should've done this first. We'd planned on a quick zip round all the military museums but we had to abandon the others as we spent 2 hours here & had to leave as they were closing. Perhaps it would be less interesting if you were aware of the history,... More

Quite interesting, was a very clean and warm ambience. I am fairly keen on the history of Ghurkha's and they did not disappoint!

My father fought alongside the Gurkhas in WWII and said he always valued them and wouldn't be in the field without them. So a museum I was really pleased to find. It is full of their history and the staff so helpful when I didn't have all the information required. They went out of their way to help me. I... More
