Owner description: The Museum tells the fascinating story of four of the British army's most famous regiments. This long history, dating back to the 1680s, is told through many kinds of objects including uniforms, medals, weapons and models. The regiments have seen action in many prominent events, including the British campaign in South Africa (visit us and discover what really happened in the 1879 Zulu War!), And both world wars. Forty-three of the regiments' soldiers have received the Victoria Cross, and we commemorate their sacrifice and heroism as well as that of all the men and women associated with our regiments who have contributed so much to our country.

“Stand at Ease!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Well worth an hour's inspection. The curator is a fund of military knowledge. Rorke's Drift portrayal is particularly impressive.

“History come alive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Having worn the capbadgeof one of the Regts amalgamated to form the Royal Welsh (RRW), I visited this musuem a few years ago. My bias aside this is one of me favourite museums. Its well set out, interesting and has enough visual aids to excite most kids (especially grown up ones).
