The Royal Hampshire Regimental Museum plays a significant part in telling the story of the history of the people of Hampshire.

The Regimental Museum aims to educate and preserve the role of the Royal Hampshire Regiment in this history. It does this by displaying artefacts, documents and other items that inform the public of this regiment’s great achievements.

One of our main functions here at the Museum is to assist those who wish to know more of the role of the Regiment and what their relatives did in the defence of this country. We are happy to help family historians, students, authors as well as those researching their local War Memorials.

We do make a charge for these services as the Museum is a charity and relies heavily on donations. Any money raised in this way will go towards the upkeep of the Museum.

This regiment traces its history back to 1702 and in its nearly 300 years in existence has served all over the world and in most of the major conflicts. The Museum therefore has a wealth of information available to researchers and the general public.
