Attraction Information

Ages: 4+

Venue type: Indoor

The Household Cavalry Museum is a living museum about real people doing a real job in a real place. Through a large glazed partition you can see troopers working with horses in the original 18th century stables.

The experience comes alive with compelling personal stories, first-hand accounts of the troopers' rigorous and demanding training, interactive displays and stunning rare objects, many on public display for the first time.

They sometimes host family events days where there are crafts or storytelling, so to get the most out of the day for younger children do keep an eye out for those.
