This is a small museum and costs £5 to get in. This will appeal if you like military history, or Welsh history or specifically local history. It won't take too long to get around but you will learn plenty about the Welsh participation in the Empire's war in Africa and some bits and pieces about the First and Second World... More

My brother, who lives in Hereford, recommended this museum. He's a good judge, because it's a great place. We spent hours here. No one rushes you, so if you have an interest in the Zulu War, visit it. The story is engrossing, and the exhibitions are wonderful. All those Victoria Crosses. Lovely history lesson.

Managed to visit the museum at long last and at £5 pp its well worth it if you have any interest at all in the Zulu wars or the 24ths history. There is no rush and you are encouraged to take as long as you wish and to ask questions at any time which the very friendly staff are more... More

Having watched the film 'Zulu' many times, a visit to the museum was a must. A wealth of historical knowledge is available and some of the experiences described were very moving. Good displays of various battles and it was astounding to see the actual size of hand guns - much bigger than expected. Very interesting place to visit.

Can't believe the entrance fee is only £5, it is more than worth it. We spent 2 hours looking around the place but spent most of the time in the Zulu war section, the things they have from the Zulu war is amazing. The short film that is available to watch is very good and the staff that work there... More

The entry fee for this place is £5, but is well worth it. The museum provides an interesting and informative history of the Royal Welsh regiment throughout the years. It covers a vast array of conflicts, such as the Boer Wars, both World Wars, Afghanistan and of course the Zulu Wars. The displays are very detailed without being overwhelming. When... More

Lots of information about the history of this regiment. Rather crowded displays, but well worth taking your time to have a good look round. Very helpful staff
