Overview

One of Winchester's five superb Military Museums telling the story of 250 years of campaigning for peace by The Royal Green Jackets and their former regiments, the 43rd and 52nd (The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry), the 60th (The King's Royal Rifle Corps) and the 95th Rifles (The Rifle Brigade). An outstanding collection of uniforms, weapons, silver, paintings and medals set over two floors. The exhibition on the first floor, entitled 'With the Rifles to Waterloo', opened in 2015 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. The centrepiece of the exhibition is the 25 square metre model of the battle with light and sound commentary. The museum is situated in Peninsula Square, formerly the barracks and the home of the Rifle Depot.

Wandered around this amazing building, or at least the parts that the public are allowed to see. A brilliant tribute to the brave men who died.

Excellently curated museum which is well laid out and very interesting! Really enjoyed our visit. The Battle of Waterloo diorama was particularly impressive. However the highlight was the friendly and genuinely kind staff who were very informative and helpful. Really made our day!

One of the best military museum around. Well laid out and on display about 57 VC's I think. I won't say too much about this Regimental Museum of 3 Green Jacket Regiments as it would spoil it for you. GO AND SEE IT, you will...More

The memorabilia housed in this building alone was worth the visit never mind the history and information that you learn about, I left feeling very thankful and humbled.

Not the biggest fan of museums but this was good and we spent a good two hours there so was good value for money.
