Despite being housed in a magnificent Georgian building this is actually quite a small museum occupying only a couple of ground floor rooms. It is fairly modern in layout with big display cases housing medals, guns and various artefacts. All the main campaigns are covered: WW1, India. WW2, Malaya, Northern Ireland, etc. It is free of charge, Very similar to... More

This was a very interesting trip, lots of interactivity for children, mock battles, dressing up, drawing etc.plenty of displayed artefacts, and minuscule models of battles.. Medals, musical instruments and uniforms through the years. There is also a cafe, near the entrance from Romsey Rd, toilet facilities, and access to upper floors by lift. A very interesting few hours were spent... More

This museum is a very interesting little museum that tells the story of The Royal Hampshire Regiment mainly through the 2 world wars. It has some very interesting displays and we spent quite a while looking around. Well worth a visit if you are in Winchester.

This is a lovely regimental museum. The museum does its best to contain the rich history and heritage of the Royal Hampshires, but the space is a bit limited. The staff at this museum are delightful and helpful. I visited at a time when the Great War exhibit was being renovated. I would like to visit again to see what... More

Visited yesterday with Winchester's other military museums.They even kept open for us because we had travelled a fair way. The displays were excellent particularly the striking drums and standards as you walk in. The displays were well thought out and informative. A most interesting mixture and very well lit.The volunteer on duty could not have been more helpful.Keep up the... More

Very interesting small museum set in a lovely house in Winchester. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff, more than willing to research relatives who have served in the regiment at any time. I personally have received a copy by e-mail of the Regimental Journal detailing the last days that the 2nd Battalion spent at Gallipoli which records the wounding and subsequent... More

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.
