Great small museum, well worth a couple of hours for all ages, and manned by welcoming, knowledgeable staff
Oct 2021 • Family
This is a wonderful small museum that charts the history of the Regiment from its foundation. It’s small enough to be interesting for all, but there is a couple of hours of immersion for this that want to take their time. Outside the trenches and sound effects are a glimpse into the past, and are well done, the air raid ‘experience’ likewise.
Behind the museum is a play area that will let adults sit for 10 minutes while the kids run amok, and there is a small cafe trailer for refreshments.
Museums like this live and breathe due to the enthusiasm and dedication of the volunteers and staff, and the guys here are a great example of that.
I’ve been twice in the last year, with young children, and need to go back soon to spend a bit more time reading the displays on my own!
Highly recommended

Amazing Trench
Jul 2021
If you visit Lichfield or the area you HAVE to go here the trench are terrific and terrifying! ;) Though small it is so fun. It is very interactive with replica bunkers' and a great play park! There is a tiny gift shop and a museum If you like learning there is a walk were you can learn all about the heroes in WW1 who were in the Staffordshire regiment

Fun and informative

We had a great afternoon visiting the museum and exhibits outside. Very informative and the interactive elements were brilliant for my two boys. The attendant we met was excellent, explaining many of the exhibits and telling us about the history of the regiment. Look forward to visiting again in the near future.

Value for money

Great day out, very interesting and thought provoking, staff helpful and great knowledge, willing to take time to discuss and answer questions. Really good for families and couple alike, and even if military is not your normal day out, worth it, as you get immersed into what it was like, both modern day and historically. Would highly recommend this as a few hours well spent. Thanks everyone.

Loved it
Jun 2021
I was here to get dressed up in WW1 gear & take part in a fundraiser.
I wandered around & found the whole thing to be amazing despite the fact I'm not really into this sort of stuff.
The volunteers were just the most amazing, funniest bods ever.
Definitely worth a visit.

This museum is a must!
Jun 2021 • Couples
What a gem of a museum! Arrived to an unassuming building don’t let this fool you. We were greeted warmly by the staff and briefed about the museum and its exhibits.

This museum houses all manners of interesting facts, displays and audiovisual but just when you think you’ve been intellectually stimulated enough it’s gets even BETTER! the real highlights for us were the outdoor exhibits. No spoilers here but you will be transported back to the 1900 hundreds through a perfect mash of replicas, sounds and info boards, it doesn’t disappoint. If you closed your eyes you could almost be there.

Bravo the Stafford’s Regt Musuem!

A must see
Jun 2021 • Couples
Well impromptu bucket list visit. On arrival there was a WW1 event. £5 entry. Lovely welcoming staff all dressed up. Brilliant display and brilliant piece of culture and history. Every man woman and child should visit and see our men and women at war, at play and serving our country. Trench display was ace, guides told you all about it and the displays were out of this world. Anderson shelters, guns, kids interacting with the staff. All in all it was a brilliant visit can't say or impressed we were. Thanks guys n girls. Not forgetting the wrvs canteen ladies for a cuppa.

Informative family trip.
Jun 2021 • Family
A couple of hours well spent walking round the museum. We were met by very friendly and helpful volunteers, in costume.
Great value for money, £13 for a family ticket, which allows us access for a whole year.
Very well presented museum, with loads of information and trenches which give you a little glimpse into what it might have been like.

Five out of five. Staff were mint and very informative and helpful. Trenches were my favourite part along with the tank climbing frame.
