More about the New Museum
The new museum is located in Warwick. The address is Trinity Mews, Priory Road CV34 4NA. Parking is available very close by; the railway station is a short walk; there is a very good pub opposite; Warwick Castle is a stone’s throw away.
The building was built originally as a Glass works but was then used by both the Warwickshire Yeomanry and the TA for most of the last century. 50 years ago it was used by QOH as their Home Headquarters, which gives us a very welcome connection to the building. It is currently an architect’s practice.
The building is very sound but whilst we are making the changes necessary to improve access and display of our regimental collection we will also update as necessary the electricity, plumbing and fire protection systems to make it last another 30 years.
Creating & Funding
The museum will be created by Regimental volunteers working under the direction of the Collection Trustees. We will have the support of a number of museum consultants.
Our crowdfunding of the building will be supported by other applications to museum related grant making bodies to create the best displays.
Who will use the museum?
The museum will be open to the public. We will not be charging admission charges but we will seek donations from visitors.
The museum will be attended. Research support and advice about the Regiment will be provided.
We hope to make the museum available to members to hold small parties/receptions amongst the displays. Catering will have to be brought in from the outside.
