The museum is an absolute must for anyone interested in regimental history. Displays show uniforms through the ages & an array of weapons from various wars. Set in the beautiful rooms of Shrewsbury castle, this is a great way to spend an hour or two.

Visited on a wet Grey summers day - interesting building lovely gardens. Very impressed with the whole journey, hidden teddies for young children to find among the displays. All very informative for adults!

Enjoyed visit to castle/museum. Regimental museum was very interesting, castle grounds were lovely and great views from tower. The grounds were free to visit and £4 each to see museum. Would recommend.

The variety of uniforms displayed is amazing, great history timeline of regiment. Lowadmission price. Stairs are a thing to be careful about. some of display descriptions could be larger.
