  • I've been here for a wedding reception and the room is great. So much I've decided to have my own wedding here, we sampled an afternoon tea and it was incredible.
  • A lot of museums are known for being somewhat olde worlde and somewhat drab in their appearance. Sometimes even the exhibits and some of the staff fall into that description. My visit to the Fusilier Museum was quite the contrary. Stepping through the entrance door was like entering into a bright mini mart. A profusion of items that were for sale, were displayed to their best advantage. Modern shelving was fixed to the walls and free standing book cases were neatly arranged about the floor space, All of which were filled with tempting goods. Books of different shapes, sizes and colours were begging to be read. Each telling their own story of various wars that the Fusiliers had been involved in over the years. There were games and toys for the children to buy. Shopping bags, mugs, pens and all the usual souvenir items were to be had. A short distance away was the reception desk, looking like one that might be seen in a four star hotel. A pleasant lady was on duty to answer my query. Public toilets were in easy reach of the desk. They were spacious and clean and there was wheel chair access to one of them. The museum proper is on the same level and once again provides easy access for wheel chair users. The exhibits are bright and well displayed. The lighting is tasteful and efficient. The Fusilier story is told in chronological order, with life size mannequins wearing full military uniforms and each playing their part. Presently being displayed, as part of the Centenary celebrations for the First World War, are five Victoria Crosses that were all won 'before breakfast' on the one day. Following a most enjoyable and educational tour of the museum I returned to the reception area where there is a lift. A restaurant is situated one floor up which is modern and spacious. I noticed salad dishes were being consumed by the lady visitors, possibly getting in trim for the coming summer weeks. As for myself, I made do with a pot of tea and a scone with butter. Unlike the weak tasting tea that tends to be sold at public places, this one was strong. Perhaps it was the military influence that made it so. Staff members were on duty to answer questions and to deal with any problems. I put them through their paces with my many questions and I have to say they graduated with flying colours. I really think Bury's Fusilier Museum has got a winning formula. Good gifts; good exhibits; good presentation and above all Good Staff.
