THE MUSEUM WILL REOPEN IN "MAY 2014"
We are a Regimental Museum completely supported by Volunteers and our aim is to safeguard the heritage and collective memory of those who have served with the Warwickshire Yeomanry so that both present and future generations may learn the importance of the past through its history.
The Last Parade
We are very proud of our living history project in conjunction with "Torn Corner Limited" that has produced a DVD of the story of the change from Horses to Tanks, described by the soldiers who were there.

‘The Museum whilst retaining much of its original layout is far more spacious, light and airy has not lost its individuality.’
