Following the announcement of a new national lockdown The Rifles Museum has now closed! Please follow us on social media for stories from the history of The Rifles and their antecedents, news and updates about the Museum and more…


We have brought in a number of measures to meet the guidance put in place by the Government. This includes a one-way route through the galleries, signage reminding about the social distancing measures in operation and hand sanitiser placed nearby to our second-hand books area, touchscreens and beside our shop stock and feedback forms. These changes have enabled us to achieve the Visit England ‘We’re Good To Go’ Standard.

We have also moved our activities online our social media channels while we are unable to host in person events in our gallery. We are hoping our dressing up clothing and a newly refitted activities area will return in 2021.


We thank you for your ongoing patience and support. Stay safe.
