Aldershot Military Museum

About

Housed in the only surviving brick-built barrack blocks left in Aldershot, Aldershot Military Museum tells the story of daily life for both soldier and civilian in the town since 1854.

 The story of Aldershot Military Town and the civil towns of Aldershot, Farnborough and Cove is told using vibrant collections, housed within the fascinating, original buildings. Explore the site, admire the tanks and vehicles and join in with the hands-on activities. Throughout the year, the museum runs a programme of fun, family-friendly events and activities, full details can be found on the museum website. The gift shop is the perfect place to find a special present for someone interested in military history, and they also stock a wide range of military and local history books, as well as pocket-money treats for children. The welcoming café serves Mozzo coffee, New Forest Ice Cream and a selection of cold drinks and snacks.

 Last entry 30 minutes before closing. Due to the museum’s position within an active military base, there are some restrictions regarding photography. Please ask at reception for more details.
