I think this museum has been limited by the lack of space, a lot has been squeezed in, which leaves it a little disjointed. That said it is free and try's to present as much as possible of the history of the now gone Hampshire Regiment which is commendable. I would suggest it is visited as part of Winchester Military...

Another slightly pokey regimental museum which feels as if the collection is just a random assortment of items shoved together. It needs more space and more order.

A small but pleasant museum giving a good insight into the History of the old Regiment. The Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable and it made the visit worthwhile for me as my Grandfather served in the Regiment during the First World War.

It's very conveniently situated close to the town centre. The building is imposing both inside and outside. The exhibits are well laid out and labelled and the staff are very helpful.

Then there's the room with all the medals and insignia of the Regiment and uniforms and weaponry. You also get the full history of the Royal Hampshire's.A very good museum to visit and... More

Most regimental museums are small, this is no exception. But it is in a lovely building and is well laid out and nicely presented. The staff in particular are very helpful and seem genuinely pleased to see you, nothing is too much trouble. Ask for help if you want to know about an ancestor who served in the regiment, the...
