Come and learn the history of the RAPTC which for over 150 years has been keeping the British Army "Fighting Fit and Fit to Fight". From battlefield exploits to sporting heroes, the Museum charts the development of physical training and its importance to the Army. With interactive displays and historic objects, including military kit and items from some of our biggest Olympic stars.

An interesting and well presented museum, not too big which helps keep museum fatigue at bay. Staff very helpful, informative and enthusiastic. An enjoyable trip and useful if you have teenagers who may be considering an Army career.
