Who are we?
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 is well worth a visit in its own right. A visit to Winchester’s Military Museums (WMM), however, provides an opportunity to visit all of them and enjoy an interesting ‘day out’.
Additionally, there is a WMM Visitor’s Centre with refreshments available. There is also an information display in the same building as The Royal Green Jackets (Rifles) Museum about The Rifles, the largest infantry regiment in the British Army, formed in 2007 from a merger of The Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment, The Devonshire and Dorset Regiment, The Light Infantry and The Royal Green Jackets.
Winchester’s Military Museums collectively run a programme of events which runs throughout the year. To find out ‘What’s on’ click here.
Three of the museums – Horsepower, The Royal Green Jackets and Gurkha museums – charge for admission. The other two are free entry. Opening times vary.
