The Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum in Gloucester Docks celebrates the region’s rich military history with a varied array of exhibits. The collection examines local troops such as the Glorious Glosters and Royal Gloucestershire Hussars, exploring their part in conflicts stretching from the American Revolutionary War to the Napoleonic War, and both World Wars.
Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum
The Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum reopened in April 2014 after a major refurbishment. When you visit, you can discover the lives of Gloucestershire soldiers from the last 300 years.
Fun activities include trying on army uniforms, look into a First World War trench. Learn about medals and how soldiers won them through history with the museum’s interactive displays.
Find out how the Gloucestershire Regiment won the Back Badge. Or find out how the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars survived fighting in the desert? The museum has ever-changing exhibitions, so they will always have something new to see and learn.
The story about the soldiers of Gloucestershire begins in 1694, then travels through the Napoleonic Wars. Then on to the Age of Empire, Worlds Wars and Korea. Finally, right up to modern-day conflicts in the middle east.
