The Winchester barracks are a stunning place and this museum fantastic. If you are a waterloo or sharpe nut you have to go. The displays were top draw and the model which is the center piece brilliant. The digital display that goes with it illuminates all. This is well though out and the best regimental museum I have visited so... More

Took my grandson to see this, lots of interning facts, displays and hands on things for children to do.Dressing up, mock battles, drawing etc.The small scale models of battles were particularly interesting, such detail.It had special memories for me, as before Penninsula Barracks was sold, I had worked here, my husband was a Greenjacket and it was nice to reminisce.

Travelled down from Crewe specifically to visit the group of Military Museums in Winchester. I was unaware of the Waterloo exhibition that is currently on( I was actually advised by one of the other museums that it was on) ...what an added bonus. Possibly one of the best military museums in the UK. I am a massive fan of Sharpe... More

We visited the Royal Green Jackets museum on a visit to Winchester with our son, who recommended the museum to us. The museum has recently added a new section for the anniversary of Waterloo. We loved the diorama, which gave us a feel of the size of the battlefield and what happened where. We were also interested to see the... More

I really enjoyed this museum, I remember visiting it many years ago before the refit. I liked the way the museum flowed and in fact I could have spent a lot more time there then we had. There is bucket loads of information so take your time and be prepared to read quite a lot. The Waterloo Diorama is absolutely... More
