It is worth a visit to remind yourself how much this tiny nation has given to ours - there are so many VCs in this museum it makes you feel humble.

If you are interested in military history or the history of the British brigades of Gurkhas, this is the place. Also, the gift shop sells high quality military standard Kukris for much less than tourist stands sell lower quality tourist models.

Right across the street from Seti River Gorge, it is an army memorial museum. Can be visited in 30 minutes though if one really want to read all the information it will take upto 2 hours.

The museum is comprehensive and covers all regiments in British, Indian and Nepalese forces. I had the honour of serving in the 6th Gurkha Rifles many years ago and was very impressed by the historical accuracy of the content. Jai Sixth!

Really enjoyed going this museum, incredibly informative and gives you an in depth background to the history of the British Gurkha's. Loads of memorabilia and pictures etc. If you have an interest in history and the armed forces well worth a visit

This was a pilgrimage for me, my father had contact with the Gurkha regiments when he was serving in India & Burma during WW2. It was good to read the experiences of a number solders who supported our troops & continue to be important members of our armed services.

I had not known much about the Gurkhas and their role in the British forces. This museum tells the whole story with amazing details, curations, story telling and displays- it draws the visitor into the experiences and stimulates the imagination.
