Museum is a couple of museums in one. There is the military museum - booking essential at time of writing and a smaller Burrell Collection museum on the same site.
Clearer signs showing way into both would have been appreciated. Not many people there at time of visit - it is a few hundred yards out of town and not very well posted.

This museum is located within the fantastic surroundings of the original barracks in Berwick.
Not the largest of museums but it is effectively spread over several floors and is well able to tell the story of this famous regiment. The medal collection on display is comprehensive and well worth a look. The Setting of the lovely town of Berwick Upon Tweed nicely rounds off any visit.
The history of the Regiment from 1689 to the present day is traced through displays of uniforms, badges, medals, weapons and relics from the various campaigns in which it has been involved.
There is a paying car park 50 metres from the Barracks. Facilities on site: Toilets (including disabled), Museum sales point. Light refreshments are available in the English Heritage shop. due the listed nature of the buildings, there is no wheelchair access to the upper floors of the Museum.

Well worth a visit if in Berwick. Set inside the historic barracks thought to be the first purpose built military barracks in Britain. Although the Kings Own Scottish Borders have been amalgamated into The Royal Regiment of Scotland, their illustrious history is most wonderfully displayed in their Regimental Museum, allow a morning or an afternoon for visit.

Went yesterday, June 16th did not know it was there, but a great afternoon out for all ages. The museum is set out over four areas and not just "boring old stuff" but very well positioned and fun for everyone. Only cost £11 for a family so great value and not too busy so could really spend time wandering around, definitely recommend to all

Definitely worth a visit, it is located within the old KOSB barracks and has free entry.

You will need to pay to visit the other two museums run by English Heritage also housed within the old barracks. But to be honest the KOSB museum is by far the best of the museums and free if you tell the ticket office you are only wanting to visit it and not the other two museums.

The museum is spread out over two floors and two buildings, housing lots of exhibits ranging from period uniforms, military weapons, medals. Several life size dioramas bring military service to life.

Of course the Regimental Colours room is definitely the defining end to the museums tour.

A visit to the Barracks and the surrounding fortifications at Berwick on Tweed is well worth a visit. The walk around the walls is itself very enjoyable but there is a charge to enter the barracks. The visit to the barracks was not what you could call exciting but a visit to The Kings Own Scottish Borderers Museum (inside the Barracks) is probably worth the entrance fee. There is a car park very close with no fee to park.

Went here to see where my granddads regiment had their head quarters and try to find some records and I found some interesting stuff on him so I was pleased with that. I will need to contact the MOD war records for more
The museum was very interesting and shows the regiment in all its glory. Great place to visit if you are in Berwick upon Tweed.

One of 3 museums at Berwick Barracks. Very well chronologically laid out museum. Well worth a visit for anybody interested in regimental history.
