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

Great & interesting museum, super for boys! Dressing up, model soldiers, medals & interesting exhibition of the battle of Waterloo. Set by beautiful square with attractive buildings & water fountains. Lovely walk through the old streets down to the cathedral & city centre. Children free. Well worth a visit.

Well worth a visit. Packed with history and interesting things! So much to see. The Waterloo section is amazing and explains the battle very clearly. Allow plenty of time.

Great hommage to a great regiment. We visited the Waterloo exhibition which was excellent (except for the 'small' gaffe of having Antwerp as Amsterdam on all maps, quite painful for someone from Antwerp). A pity the museum is housed in a low ceilinged, rather small rooms. I am sure it would benefit from grander premises.

Anyone interested in history, especially military history will enjoy this museum. It has a particularly interesting display on the first floor about the Napoleonic Wars and the role of the Rifles. Interesting diorama of the battle of Waterloo.
