Although Cornwall’s Regimental Museum is situated within one of Bodmin’s most imposing historic buildings, the old Army Keep, we are a fun and friendly attraction, suitable for all the family.

Situated close to the Bodmin and Wenford Steam railway station, we house the best military collection in the South West. Our displays include uniforms through the ages, paintings and decorative arts, photographs, superb medals, and an outstanding collection of weaponry.

Join us for one of our many events, including 'Living History' days, or just come along to browse our collection. While you're here why not have a go at our museum quiz, or give the bugle a go!

We visited on Tuesday 7 February and as always when I visit military museums , I am humbled by the service and dedication of our service men and women.The displays are laid out well and it's easy to follow the progression of the regiment through its many incarnations.My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

I was unsure at first whether this museum would be for me, having no particular interest in military history but boy was i surprised! The displays are engaging, well lit and full of wonderful stories and facts! I found it fascinating and I truly surprised myself at how much i enjoyed it! Well worth £5 entry and would visit again!
