Following the Government’s announcement of a new lockdown, The Rifles Museum will be closed from Thursday 5th November until Wednesday 2nd December. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!


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.
