Gives a different perspective on years of association to the British Army - a grossly undervalued contribution by these brave men and their families.
My friend and I were in Winchester and visiting other historical places of interest,when luckily we stumbled on this museum. It was packed with many items far to many to explain...sufficient to say do not miss if in the area.
The Gurkha's are a unique fighting force and it is only fitting that they have their own museum - and what a setting it is within the wonderful Peninsula Barracks complex.

The Gurkha museum is very cleverly designed to optimise the use of space in telling of the support given to the war efforts by this body of men in many battalions.

This is a really quaint museum. Cheap to get in. Nothing really for the kids though (it is free for kids). A simple dressing up area, some objects they could touch (everything says do not touch) and a kids quiz for the way round are easy fixes.
Well worth a visit, interesting and informative . Other museums in walking distance and a lovely setting . Very good value and we will visit again.
Visited today and spent an hour or so wandering around reading and seeing the lives of the Gurka soldiers in so many battles and countries. Beautiful displays and loads of info. Park in the Peninsular complex and use the little cafe by the entrance gates for some sustenance afterwards.
We thoroughly enjoyed this visit. The staff were exceptionally polite, helpful and knowledgeable. Good displays, well laid out and telling a fascinating story few of us seem to know. They aree very much a part of the history of this country.
This is one of my favourite places I visited,the museum is over three floors in general and goes into depth of the history and the background of the Ghurka's and the people themselves..by the time you come out of this place and after spending some time within,,you'll come out with full total respect for these people.
