This Summer the six museums of Winchester’s Military Museums are taking objects and information about their connections to the Royal family out of the barracks and into the City Centre.
From now until September, visitors to the City can find out more about the military history of Winchester, and the extensive links between the Museums and the monarchy, in a free display in Winchester’s Visitor Information Centre.
Visitors to the Information Centre can see a tie that was worn by Prince Phillip, Prince Michael’s hat and a number of artefacts relating to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, all watched over by a lifesize Rifleman.
The Museums are located at the North of the City in the Victorian Barracks that was the historic home of the Rifle regiments, and all six Museums have deep rooted connections with the Royal Family. Explore them this summer by visiting the temporary display in the City Centre and by visiting the Museums themselves.
