a must while in Berwick. Excellent displays and great little shop, and very helpful staff. Can be accessed from the town walls. Some displays have a sound track which adds to the feeling of how the soldiers lived and fought.

excellent, to be able to visit my partners barracks, and share some of the history and past. It is a pity it is closed at weekends and only being able to look through the gate but making the effort to visit on a week day

We visited the barracks hoping for an insight into life as a soldier in Berwick but what we found were three fairly traditional museums inside the old buildings. From the outside the buildings are imposing and expectations were high as we went into the parade ground. The first of the museums was given over to the Kings Own Scottish Borderers... More

3 contrasting museums in historic buildings. The Scots Border regiment museum is one of the best of its kind. Both the other 2 museums are very child friendly.
