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

At £5 per entry, its a bit steep for such a small museum, but we found it interesting and packed with good exhibits. The best bits though are those relating to the Zulu wars

I recently stayed in Cardiff and decided to make a hour long detour on my way home to the Regimental Museum in Brecon. What a wonderful place to visit! Well worth the entrance fee. My plan was to only stay for a while - 2 hours later I emerged. If you want to know anything at all about the history... More

What a fantastic place to visit have been may times. Full of history. Always take visitors to it and fantastic school trips they even get items out for the children to experience.

Lots to see here if you're interested in military history. A gentleman volunteer was extremely helpful when we enquired about finding out about a relative killed in WW1. He found out loads of information for us and printed out copies of various documents including a citation and war grave info. A must if you like war history. Thanks to the... More

Been here many times, over many years. Excellent museum and very friendly/helpful people. Full of history. Find out the real story about the 24th Foot (2nd Warwickshire) in Zululand! Whatever you do, don't visit Brecon without including a visit to the museum. Otherwise you'll be missing something special. Worth every penny!

I went to the Royal Welsh show with a horse loving person on our trip around Wales, it was fantastic, more so for me because the Kings Troop from Woolwich Barracks near me were performing. Builth Wells was a pretty village from what I saw as I was going in and out of the show, too crowded to stop those... More

If you are interested in history, then a visit to this wonderful museum brings home the true grit and determination, as well as the bravery of our unsung military hero's from the past. The museum has many medals, photographs, equipment and details relating to various campaigns for the regiment. Probably the most well known is the battle at Rorkes Drift,... More

Visited with an old Airforce friend and found it very interesting, especially the Zulu war section, as lived in South Africa for many years not far from Rorkes drift etc, will recommend to others.

I had been fortunate to see the site of Rorke's Drift in South Africa. The display and background of the Anglo-Zulu war was encapsulated by the display in the museum and the short video. I feel that this history must be passed on to future generations and I hope the museum staff encourage as many schools as possible to visit.... More
