Attraction Information

Cheshire Military Museum is a fantastic place to find out about the military history of the Cheshire regiments during many battles across the world.
You can learn about the wars that they fought as you immerse yourself in the fascinating history of these valiant soldiers. Experience what life was like in the trenches during World War I and discover the harsh discipline of the 18th century, when it seems they wanted men to be more frightened of their superiors than the enemy!
There are plenty of interesting things to see such as an impressive medal collection (there are over 200 drawers full!), and a number of different uniforms. You can see lots of cool weapons, including a number of rifles and machine guns, plus signalling equipment and a collection of regimental silver.
It is worth taking your time in the Introductory Room at the start as it will give you the chance to find out about badges of rank and military terminology that may be used. You can also find out about the history of the castle, including its time as a training depot for the regiment.
