We arranged to visit the museum for my daughter's research for a school project. The staff, especially Anita, were absolutely brilliant. Soooo knowledgeable about everything and we felt like really special visitors. Dotted around the exhibits were uniforms to try on and games to play to enhance the learning experience. It was a very enjoyable trip from start to finish.

Situated in Richmond marketplace, this small museum is crammed with army memorabilia from the defunced Green Howard's regiment, which had it's roots in Richmond & the nearby Catterick Garrison. Free to enter, this is a great little museum to spend an hour or two.
