The New Museum

Who is deciding on the content?

  • The Museum Project Team – Trustees and members of the Association who are keenly interested in our Regimental history taking account of all the artefacts and records we have in the Collection. The Project Team will take advice from other professionals who know what regimental museums can do and can provide.

What will the content look like? Does it look like on the pictures on this site?

  • The pictures on this website are only artists’ impressions of various options. The display will cover two floors and will be a mixture of artefacts displayed in wood and glass cabinets, suitable to protect the valuable artefacts or documents, open displays and tableaux of events and uniforms, information displayed on graphics, audio visuals and modern interactive digital displays with a central display showing one of our great Hussars, Sir Winston Churchill who was commissioned into the 4th Hussars and finished his military career as Regimental Colonel. Floor plans have been drawn up by our consultants and agreed by the Project Team. A set of these plans can be found here.

Will there be disabled access and parking?

  • Yes – there will be disabled entry to the ground floor directly from our car park where disabled parking spaces will be available. A WC with disabled access will be found on the ground floor and a chair lift to the first floor will be available for use. There will not be a lift.
