Five museums within yards of each other!

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’.

Additionally, there is a Visitor’s Centre with refreshments available at the on-site The Little Kitchen Café.

Please see the individual museum sites for information about facilities.
