Cornwall’s Regimental Museum is recognised as probably the finest Military Museum in the South West of England. Housed in “The Keep”, former army barracks and imposing Grade II listed building, the large and varied collection tells the story of the County Regiment from 1702 until the present date, as well as the national collection of the Light Infantry.
An excellent collection of uniforms, weaponry, medals, musical instruments, decorative and fine arts and some surprises - such as the biggest piece of the Berlin wall in the country.
Dogs are welcome. Look out for our special family events.

A fine collection of medals, weapons, uniforms, paintings and artefacts are clearly displayed and will appeal to all age groups, enhancing and bringing to life much of the country’s history covered in the National Curriculum.
