Owner description: The Green Howards Museum charts the 300 year history of this illustrious local infantry regiment. Housed in a former church in the centre of the market place, the galleries show a range of objects from military equipment, medals and uniforms as well as using personal items donated to the regiment throughout the centuries to tell the human story of those of who have served. The museum is a light, bright, place with loads to discover for all the family and features a range of activities for our younger visitors. The museum also runs education, community events and activity programmes.

this is a very needed reminder of what our young men and women do for us it is due to be refurbished in 2014 so even more reason to visit when done.

Situated in Richmond marketplace, this small museum is crammed with army memorabilia from the defunced Green Howard's regiment, which had it's roots in Richmond & the nearby Catterick Garrison. Free to enter, this is a great little museum to spend an hour or two.

The Green Howards, apparently have been merged with another British Army Regiment but this museum gives an excellent review of its distinguished history. During WWII, it was mainly finally responsible for clearing the Germans out of Norway and in gratitude King Haakon presented the regiment with a ceremonial sword. In return he accepted the honour of becoming the Colonel in Chief

Regrettably we had to fly around this museum as it was thier last day before closing for refurbishment, but theer was no charge. Once up and running again we would highly recommend spending time looking at what the Green Howards have done to assist the United Kingdom.
