There are lots of interesting things here to see and read about. My husband basically read the writing off everything. For myself I was more content to browse and read only the things that interested me. As with any historical building or display there are always things you read and didn't know about previously so you are always learning.

Owned by English Heritage, the barracks are now deserted but offer a couple of exhibitions inside them. Other than that, there is nothing here but you are left to walk around by herself.

Two museums at the Barracks, covering different times of the history of the militia with a focus on the Barracks and those stationed there. The exhibitions in both are interesting and well presented.

Had I not known about this lovely little museum I might never have found it, but it was worth a little ferreting. Actually three museums in one, there is something for everyone here- be it local, national or military history you're into, there'll be something for you. You might even find something you didn't know- I did, after all! Couple... More

Enjoyed this museum- a thorough history of the regiment accompanied by pipe music, some of the models used in the displays were incredibly life-like and added to the enjoyable experience, well worth a visit if in the area
