All very welcome but please note that the Museum is located inside a gated military camp and all visits are therefore by prior appointment only.

Arranging Your Visit

Visitors are very welcome. However, because the museum is located on a working military unit, all visits are by appointment only. Once a visit is arranged, visitors are required to bring a valid passport or current UK driving licence with them and 'book in' at the guardroom from where they will be escorted to the museum.

There are two steps to the front door, but if required, there is a ramp at the side of the building suitable for wheelchair access. There are soft chairs in every room so that visitors can sit and relax whilst listening to a tour guide or just contemplating a display.

Please allow two hours for your visit. It is not a large museum, but there are a lot of things to see. There are limited attractions for younger children, but we do have a quiz sheet and a 'find the Bear' game to amuse them if you do have smaller children in your group. The museum is probably not suitable for children under ten.
