The Gurkha Museum reviews
Nice and cool inside on a very hot day. Friendly staff. Cost £5 each to enter. Amazing amount of information on the Gurkha regiments, people and the large number of campaigns they have fought in. more »
Great little museum, enjoyed walking aroung and learning the history of this wonderful regiment. Our boys enjoyed looking at all the weapons. The information was presented well and kept our interest..... more »
Interesting, but very specific content. Probably not great for your less interested in military history person. Needs a few room fresheners in places.
The Gurkha museum is over a couple of floors, so interesting to see how the soldiers of the Brigade of Gurkha have evolved and fought over the last few hundred years. This place added to my knowledge of these fine soldiers. Also had some cadets with me, they thoughly enjoyed themselves and learnt a lot. This museum along with the AGC, the Royal Hampshires, the Hussars and the RGJ/Rifles museums means this is an absolutely fantastic complex of museums and the cafe in the old guardroom is fantastic.
