The Green Howards Museum is Richmond, North Yorkshire.

We tell the story of the regiment from its earliest times, through 300 years of conflict, service and sacrifice.

The museum is currently closed for redevelopment.

When we re-open in late summer 2014, our new galleries and flexible exhibition spaces will be used to showcase our extensive collections and give an insight into the lives of the men who served.

Exhibition: The first battle - Ypres 1914

  • 14 October 2014 — 30 April 2015 *on now

When the Green Howards Museum reopens in the autumn, our first exhibition will centre on the battle of Ypres (October and November 1914).

This battle was the last to involve open, mobile warfare on the Western Front, before entrenchment and stalemate set in.

By the end of November 1914 the Green Howards had lost a generation of professional, trained soldiers.

The exhibition will explore the role played by the Green Howards during the battle, and also track the experiences of soldiers and their families through diaries, paintings and personal effects.

The exhibition will run until April 2015.
