Add Winchester's Military Museums to your Itinerary

Re-enactors outside The Royal Green Jackets (Rifles) Museum

Winchester’s Military Museums is a grouping of five military museums situated within yards of each other on an historic site close to the city centre of Winchester and adjacent to the Great Hall.

The five museums are:

HorsePower, the Regimental Museum of The King’s Royal Hussars
The Royal Hampshire Regiment Museum
The Royal Green Jackets (Rifles) Museum
The Gurkha Museum
The Guardroom Museum, the Museum of the Adjutant-General’s Corps

Each museum is separately run and well worth a visit in its own right. A visit to Winchester’s Military Museums, however, provides an opportunity to visit all of them and enjoy an interesting ‘day out’. Collectively, we run a programme of events which runs throughout the year, but don’t miss out on annual favourites like our Armed Forces Sunday Funday in June and our Heritage Open Days in September – check out What’s On for more information on current exhibitions and forthcoming events.

 

And when you need to rest your feet or just take a break, pop into Café Peninsula in our Visitor Centre (in the Guardroom Museum), where you can enjoy great food freshly prepared from locally sourced ingredients.
