You need time to visit if you want to read all the facts. It gives a very good insight to the forces stationed in the town and battles they fought in. There are plenty of uniforms on show young children may find it too much to take in from about 7 or 8 upwards will find it interesting.

“An old friend”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

Have known this place for many years so it was on the days itenary for our visitors. The DCLI history may not be as well known as say the Para or Marine but iss none the less a pretty tough history.
Full of good well displayed content and interesting information,would suggest that if you are interested in military history you could spend a couple of happy hours here.

“Interesting place to spend an hour or so”
Reviewed 21 May 2013 via mobile

Easy to find, just up from the steam railway station.

The museum is very good value, well laid out with interesting memorabilia covering militaria. We stopped off on spec as weather was not good, glad we did and would recommend to others.

“Great little museum”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

This is one of those tucked away places that offers a great deal when you walk through the door. If military history is your thing there is a lot to discover here, which tells the story of the regiment, its people and its location.
The medals from the (then) last remaining soldier of WW1 are kept here and its right opposite the old steam railway, which adds to the feel of the place.
