  • An excellent museum within a stone's through of Clifford's Tower. It tells the story of various Infantry Cavalry regiments of Yorkshire & N.Ireland. It traces their histories & almalgamations some goi...  more »
  • We visit regimental museums whenever we visit England and they are all so well done. This museum only takes an hour or so to go through and is worth a visit. 
  • A great little museum , well laid out with lots of exhibits and information to view. The pair of us had a lump in our throats whilst viewing the WW1 items. Well worth the entrance fee.

  • This place was OK but it was smaller than I expected but the exhibitions were great the only problem I had here is there wasn't much to see & their "the Somme" special exhibitions were a table with writing on it & the walls were just pinned on paper. If this place was bigger & their special exhibitions were more exiting/interesting I would give this place a 5star/lived rating.
  • This is a hidden gem of a museum. It's wonderfully laid out, full of history, military memorabilia and character, and has friendly staff. Memorable displays include a full size display of an infantryman's uniform and weaponry from the Napoleonic War that confronts you, bayonet and all, on entering the museum. My personal favourite part of the display was the 'taken' cabinets - essentially the 'trophies of war', ie. stuff the regiments pinched from the battlefield! The museum shop also had some intriguing/odd things to buy, such as 'chocolate grenades' and even a full sniper ghillie for kids. Well worth a visit.
  • Amazing place to come with kids.
  • All very good
  • If you are interested in war & history, this is the place to be go. Exhibits are well-documented.
