The Fusilier Museum Warwick
Visit the Fusilier Museum Warwick and discover a hidden gem!
The newly curated museum brings the past to life and tells the personal stories of soldiers in the local area. It spans over 350 years of the Royal Warwickshire’s history, from its inception in 1674 right through to the Fusiliers of today including stories from more recent conflicts in Northern Ireland, Bosnia and Afghanistan.
Uniform, weapons, medals, and personal items such as diaries and letters from the museum’s collection will all be included in the new exhibition as well as a replica WW1 trench for everyone to experience and enjoy.
There will also be hands-on interactives and new displays about Hannah Snell, a female soldier, the regimental mascot Bobby the antelope and our famous sons, Field Marshals Montgomery and Slim. Visitors can also look at the Bairnsfather cartoons, listen to veterans’ experiences of D-Day and discover the personal stories behind the medals of both World Wars.
The Fusilier Museum Warwick tells the fascinating story of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment from 1674 to its successor The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers today.
The museum is currently closed but will re-open in a new location – Pageant’s House in Warwick Town Centre in Autumn 22.
The new Fusilier Museum Warwick will provide a new, unique visitor experience for all to enjoy! Despite being closed our friendly and knowledgeable staff are still available to help with any research enquiries.
