Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Museum is indeed a hidden gem and anyone interested in the history of the Scottish regiments will thoroughly appreciate this collection. Anyone with a family connection to the Royal Highland Fusiliers and its antecedent regiments the Royal Scots Fusiliers and the Highland Light Infantry will relish their chance to absorb all that is on display. The Museum was well run until March 2006 until it fell into the "stewardship" of dubious people like the harridan from Honiton who sent me the attached email. Until this woman has been exorcised from the building the Regimental Museum will be justifiably regarded as a not very user/visitor-friendly place. Under resourced.

It wasn't until I took my son to the summer kids club that I discovered the Royal Highland Fusiliers museum. He had a great time and it was good to be able to look at the displays whilst he was occupied - such a broad collection! The girl who ran the club was fantastic with all the kids and very enthusiastic about the museum. We will be back!

I found it brilliant and a good use of the limited space and they had they had plenty on show and I left feeling I have learnt plenty and look forward to being back soon. the lady I spoke to was very passionate about her role as front of house and for the regiment she works with.

I hope that the move to the Kelvin goes well and that the fundraising is achieved.

[Description]

A regimental museum in a long, narrow building. More exhibits upstairs.

[Getting there]

Nearest station: Charing Cross (Glasgow). Exit the station and walk up Newton Street. Take your second right into Sauchiehall Street and the museum will be to your left in less than a minute.

We had been there no longer than 10 minutes when the museum guard told us to leave and come back in 10 minutes because she had to go and pay for her parking. We went out for a cup of coffee and when we returned to continue our visit of what seemed to be a highly interesting and detailed exposition. We had hardly come to the Zulu War when the museum guard told us to leave because she was closing for the day. A quick look at my watch and I indicated to her that it was 14:40 and the museum was supposed to close at 16:00. Not today, she said and we had to leave. Great comedians should go there to get inspiration for stand-up comedy acts!

Behind a 'shop facade' on a busy city street hides this regimental museum, with exhibits from its previous regiments: the Royal Scots Fusiliers and the Highland Light Infantry. Both had distinguished histories and this museum does justice to both. Crippled by government stinginess the Curator struggles to give of her best and I am baffled by the poor comments of other visitors. They clearly have no idea of the difficulties regimental museums now face and one understands the problems of keeping opening hours when single-handed. I was in a group, all interested, and perhaps this led to the kind reception we had from the Curator and the Regimental Secretary who emerged from his office to help show us round. Do not judge free and voluntary facilities by the highest commercial standards - for which one pays highly.

Dragged into this non description shop front at. 518 Sauchiehall street and discovered an Aladin's cave of memorabilia of Scottish military history going back three hundred years. Three rooms then a further two rooms upstairs dedicated to WW1 need a couple if hours to digest and read. As a woman with very little interest in this area I recognised that this was worth more time than the cursory fifteen minutes we had explored. It has been around since the 1970's but needs to be added to the heritage trail for anyone with an ancestor who has served in the Scottish military.

I have walked along Sauchiehall Street so often, on many visits, and it was my husband who spotted a shop window displaying military uniforms. On entering, we discovered that this was the home of the Royal Highland Fusiliers Museum. What treasures this museum has on display. Medals, equipment uniforms, pictures everything to delight a military historian, especially one particularly interested in the Boer War. I learnt that The Royal Highland Fusiliers (RHF) was formed in 1959 by the amalgamation of The Royal Scots Fusiliers (RSF) & The Highland Light Infantry (HLI).
This museum is highly recommended. Its website is also worth a visit, and it will tempt you to pay a visit.
Entrance is free, but donations are welcome.

Thank you for your kind review - we are delighted that you enjoyed your visit. Sadly, we are known as the "hidden gem" of Glasgow, but we are in the process of trying to improve our "kerb appeal" - hopefully, the redevelopment of our end of Sauchiehall Street will help. Thank you again and look forward to see you again in the future.

We had a very interesting time exploring the Regimental Museum of the Royal Highland Fusiliers. It is full of artifacts and regimental memorabilia. The displays are well put together with a timeline as you make your way round. There are lots of things for children to do, and it is free, though donations are welcome
As if this wasn't enough it is also Rennie McIntosh building, so architecturally impressive too.

A very belated thank you for your kind words - we are very proud of our Museum and think that it is well worth a visit to learn about the contribution of the soldiers of Ayrshire and Glasgow since 1678.

Travelled over 150 miles to visit this museum .
Had been checking their website , which itself is very poor, for information about what is in the museum and opening times etc.
It is only open weekdays so had wait until I retired from work so that we could visit.
After an expensive train journey and an overnight stay, we found the museum was closed, part of the shop was open but that was all. The staff were unaware as to when the museum would be opening. We mentioned that there was nothing on the website to say it was closed. I was very disappointed as I have been planning this trip for over a year to hopefully find some information about what life would have been like for my relative who was in the HLI during the First World War.
We spent several hundred pound on train fairs and a hotel for nothing just because they couldn't be bothered to update their website.
