I went to the museum with my wife and teenage son. Entry is very reasonable (£15 total). The museum is larger than I expected, and goes across a wide time period and has lots to see, including uniforms, medals, weapons and personal effects of soldiers...More

The museum is very interesting. It is in the old barracks and it is home to some very interesting objects - even a 100 year old biscuit!

A great range of objects on display, representing both the more personal side of life for Cornwall's soldiers, as well as the history of the Regiment. A great inclusion is the new display about The Rifles. All very well laid out, with a relaxed atmosphere....More
