The Museum tells the story of over 200 years of Gurkha service to the British Crown, beginning in 1814.
The visitor experience not only covers battles and campaigns, but the culture, religion and social structure of these brave warriors.
The Gurkha Museum has something to interest people of all ages and is suitable for a family outing. Beside tableaux, dioramas, showcases and panels, it has visual and voice descriptions of the history of Gurkha Regiments, recruiting of soldiers in Nepal as well as the culture of the Gurkha in his homeland.
There is also a display commemorating the winners of 26 Victoria Crosses.
Friends play a vital and rewarding role in supporting the Museum in the maintenance and enhancement of its collections and its vision to ensure the future of Gurkha Heritage.
The Friends of The Gurkha Museum aim to give support to the Museum in every possible way by offering voluntary assistance, by promoting events and by making financial grants for specific projects and acquisitions.
