Cornwall’s Regimental Museum

Recognised as probably the finest Military Museum in the South West of England, Cornwall’s Regimental Museum is housed in “The Keep” at Bodmin, a magnificent Grade II listed Victorian building constructed in 1857.

The collection and displays cover 300 years of history, telling the story of the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry, volunteer militia and the The Light Infantry.

The museum is an Independent Registered Charity, number 1174375
