Took my children 9 and 4 to the museum. It was fab. So much to see and learn. The guides were fab. Everyone is so friendly and knowledgeable. My son loved listening to Jacob, thank you so much. We will return.

First class museum , thoughtful coverage of both the Lancashire regiments , and the amalgamated ones into the Duke of Lancaster’s. Great location, at the heart of Fulwood Barracks . Great staff. As you’d expect , more bravery and sacrifice than you could imagine .
