Attraction details
Owner description: One of Winchester's five superb Military Museums telling the story of 250 years of campaigning for peace by The Royal Green Jackets and their former regiments, the 43rd and 52nd (The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry), the 60th (The King's Royal Rifle Corps) and the 95th Rifles (The Rifle Brigade). An outstanding collection of uniforms, weapons, silver, paintings and medals set over two floors. The exhibition on the first floor, entitled 'With the Rifles to Waterloo', opened in 2015 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. The centrepiece of the exhibition is the 25 square metre model of the battle with light and sound commentary. The museum is situated in Peninsula Square, formerly the barracks and the home of the Rifle Depot.

If you love military history then this is the ideal museum for you. It is full of medals, uniform, guns, paintings...everything you would expect in a military museum. The interactive model of the battle of Waterloo was brilliant. It is £7 entry for a family but that entitles you to a year membership, so you can come back again for free! A must see if you are in Winchester.

Good to support the Museum and also to see how the old training ground has now changed into a housing complex

If you're into military history, this place is great. Didn't know it existed before. Uncrowded, small yet packed with stuff, very friendly people working there.
