Attraction Information

The Guards Museum is an excellent place to take your little (and large!) military buffs, plus anyone who would like to find out about the role of Foot Guards through history. There is plenty to see such as collections of uniforms, medals plus numerous photographs.

There is a Museum Trail for children of all ages, which has a number of activities to complete as kids explore the museum. There are drawings to colour (bring your own pencils or crayons), a questionnaire about objects hidden around the museum, plus missing letters games, which encourage kids to read the captions.

Guided tours are available for an additional charge, last about an hour and a half, and covers the history of the Foot Guards from the end of the English Civil War through to the Afghanistan campaign. The volunteers and staff are all very friendly and happy to answer any questions that the kids may have. It is worth watching the 5 minute introductory video when you arrive to get a better understanding of the different regiments and also the layout of the museum.
