Learn about the Nepalese soliders who fought with the British and Indian armies at Gurkha Memorial Museum. The museum's three floors display countless photographs and items such as uniforms and medals, including the Victoria Cross--the highest bravery medal. Upon entering, the melody of Nepali music greets you, accompanied by images depicting the difficult lives of Ghurka soldiers. The rest of the first floor continues in the same fashion, with audio effects alongside informative displays that focus on military history. The second floor focuses on the traditions of each infantry regiment, while the third floor displays concentrate on engineering and transport regiments.

  • If you grok ferocious warriors wielding fearsome spears, historic reconstitutions of the glories of British Empire, this is for you. Otherwise, you may find boring the well presented exhibits.  more »
  • This is like any other ordinary museum. This place need to be renovate. There is nothing much to see. You can also avoid this place.  more »
  • Gurkhas British history through the 1900 's and through two world wars, is collected in pictures, uniforms etc Many photos from Gurkhas when there fighting alongside British soldiers. There are saved truppslags emblems and banners from that time. Interesting museum!

  • I took a casual walk to and from Lakeside to the museum. It's a good walk and you have mountain views the entire way. It's all up hill going, but coming back later in the day it's a breeze going down hill. The museum exhibitions we're very informative. Lots of reading. Could have spent more time there if I had left earlier in the day. Because I didn't arrive back to lakeside untill 7pm (including a stop for lunch). All the past and current history is displayed, even up until today. They have a donation box, and I recommend using it. They've done a good job in compiling all the information. Definitely worth checking out.
