Cornwall’s Regimental Museum is recognized as probably the finest Military Museum in the South West of England.

Housed in “The Keep” at Bodmin, which is a Grade II listed building, constructed at the time of the Napoleonic threats, the collection tells the story of the County Regiment from 1702 until the present date.

The displays cover the story of the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry, the volunteers and volunteer militia and the successor Regiment, The Light Infantry.

Ask in the 'Rifles Office' for access to this on arrival (ground floor)

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.

An extensive library and archive exists and willing volunteers will help you research family history.
