About
300 years of friendship and adventure, service and sacrifice; our museum presents the history of this illustrious regiment through the eyes of the soldiers who served. Housed in a former church in the centre of the market place, the museum is a light, bright, place with loads to discover for all the family and features a range of activities for our younger visitors. The collection includes equipment, artwork, silver, medals (including Victoria Crosses) uniforms and personal items donated to the regiment throughout the centuries. We hold regular special exhibitions, so there's always something new to explore. We are an event venue and also run education, community events and activity programmes, and have a great gift shop; perfect for picking up a present, or a treat for yourself.

    Wonderful Regimental Museum
    Fantastic Regimental Museum. Great afternoon visit. Wonderful explanation of the regiment’s history and at the moment a really interesting exhibition on escapes. Good couple of hours entertainment and education for my family and a little bit of a family connection. Parking a bit of a problem in Richmond but that’s not the museums problem.
    Thanks for taking the time to post such a positive review, we are really glad you enjoyed your visit, and the special exhibition GREAT ESCAPES. Anyone reading this wondering about parking - park up in a space in the market place and pop into the museum or one of the shops for a parking disk - display it in your windscreen for 2hrs free parking. There's also a pay and display car park a few minutes walk away at Nuns Close.

    Great visit and outstanding service
    The museum is extremely interesting and well laid out. On speaking to a member of staff (Steve) I mentioned my great Grandfather was in the Green Howard's. Steve came back to me minutes later with print outs of my Grandfather's military records, medals and other information. He even had photos of other family members. It was absolutely brilliant and we were so taken aback. Thank you so much, can't recommend the museum enough.
    Thanks so much for taking the time to post such a positive review.

Even if you don't have a connection with the regiment, there's always something to learn.

    Great visit
    Despite many, many trips to Richmond visited The Green Howards Museum for the first time yesterday. An excellent, interesting and well laid out museum. Really interesting, great displays and learnt lots. Well worth a visit.
    It's always the way. But we're glad you finally got to come in and see us. Don't forget, your ticket allows unlimited return entry for 12 months from purchase. Don't be a stranger!

    Green Howards Half term Great Escapes Exhibition
    Well worth a visit- fascinating, well laid out, the best exhibition and lovely staff. The medal room is outstanding. Brilliant for all ages and parking is free! It is a beautiful setting and with a really good quality gift shop. I can't recommend this highly enough. Great places to eat and shop outside in the marketplace too.

    A great museum
    This is a. Cracking museum representing the Green Howard’s regiment. It’s thoughtfully laid out in a great order working your way from the raising of the regiment right through to modern day. There’s some cracking dis-lays all thoughtfully labelled and explained. One favourite of mine was the medal room worth a good hour of your time.

    Clean, modern and well designed museum.
    This excellent museum was founded at Richmond Barracks in 1922, the museum moved to its present location in the centre of the market place in Richmond in 1973. The collection spans three centuries and is spread out over three main floors (lift). The museum was extensively refurbished in 2014 and includes uniforms, medals, kit equipment, art, silver and personal items belonging to Soldiers. The medal room is particularly outstanding with well over three thousand items on display including Victoria and George Crosses. This is a clean, modern and well designed museum that perfectly does its job at demonstrating the rich history of this British Infantry Regiment.

Great place to visit. We received excellent advice on how best to view the collection from the person in reception. The artifacts range very wide covering several centuries of warfare in all its forms. We really enjoyed the museum.

Very informative, and enjoyable. Our children enjoyed doing a quiz on displays, they had to research information from displays. We enjoyed seeing all the medals on display, and the officers mess, also soldiers biographies.

We visited as a family to find out more about our grandfather's war history. The booking process was super easy and efficient. We opted for the exclusive tour. Steve, our tour guide was passionate and enthusiastic with lots of interesting stories. He gave us a really informative and captivating tour. We had a lovely coffee and cake at the start of the tour. We have also opted for the personalised research package to find out more specific information about my grandad so we are looking forwards to hearing more!

My father was in the green howards and I wanted to see how the museum was compared to the last time I visited in the 1980s when we were based in Catterick. It's so modern compared to last time. They have done all the past soldiers proud. A big shout out to Steve on reception who was full of knowledge of the green howards and made us feel so welcomed. He made my day and gave me so much information. Please visit, you won't be disappointed.
