Our new Afghanistan Gallery!

We have been working hard over the past months to design and re-display the Afghanistan exhibition in the museum. We have put new text panels up telling the story of The Rifles in Afghanistan and the numerous operations they were involved in, as well as introduce new and exciting objects for you, our visitors, to see.

One of the highlights of this new exhibition is a motorbike used by Taliban insurgents. It is the only piece of enemy kit exhibited in the museum, and one of only two motorbikes linked to the Taliban on display in the UK; the other is located in the Imperial War Museum, London.

The Hampshire Chronicle has featured the opening of our new exhibition this week, which can be seen here.

We hope you come down to the museum and see our new gallery soon!
