We are situated on Peninsula Barracks at the top end of the Winchester city centre. It’s a short walk up from the High Street, just past Winchester’s iconic Westgate and Great Hall. We are also within walking distance of Winchester train station (approximately 5 minutes).

Limited free parking is available to museum visitors located at the front of the museum. However, it is advised that you go to the front desk of any of the other five museums in order to pick up a days free parking permit. Please place this clearly in the front windscreen of you vehicle. The museums you can collect a permit from include the Royal Green Jackets, Adjutant General’s Corps, Horse Power and The Gurkha Museum’s.
