Gun Handling Sessions

Close up of a Gun's firing mechanism

Date: February 1, 2017

Cornwall’s Regimental Museum will be holding special Gun Handling Sessions on selected dates throughout the year.  This an excellent opportunity for children and adults alike to learn about the historic weaponry used throughout hundreds of years of battle, and the innovations and pitfalls of firearms throughout the ages.  Discover the finest collection of weaponry in the South West and get up close and personal with the museum’s armoury right here in ‘The Keep’, the former barracks of the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry Regiment.


The next confirmed gun handling sessions will be:

Father’s Day – Sunday 18th June 2017 – at 11:30, 13:00 and 14:00.
