Aldershot Military Museum

About this Attraction

Housed in the only surviving brick-built barrack blocks left in Aldershot, the museum tells the story of daily life for both soldier and civilian.

The story of Aldershot Military Town and the towns of Aldershot, Farnborough and Cove is told using our vibrant collections within the fascinating, original buildings. Explore the site, admire the tanks, take on the assault course and join in with the hands-on activities. Throughout the year, we also run a programme of fun, family-friendly exhibitions and events.
