Bringing our Heritage together
The Adjutant General's Corps Museum
The Adjutant General’s Corps Museum is located in the former guardroom of Peninsula Barracks, situated at the top of the High Street in Winchester, and is a ten-minute walk from the train station. The building also houses Joe’s Café and the visitor’s information point for Winchester’s Military Quarter. Although located in a historic building the museum is fully accessible but note that there is limited free parking available with a car pass on site. Please come to the museum office to receive a car pass to use for the duration of your visit to Winchester’s Military Quarter and to receive directions on where visitor parking is located.
The museum displays the history of the antecedents and modern Corps through text, images, objects, and dioramas. There is also a dressing-up box, a floor game, and quizzes for children.
Royal Military Police Museum
The Royal Military Police Museum is housed within the old stable block of Southwick House and within easy reach of Southwick village. The house itself was commandeered by the Military for use during the planning for D-Day, and is where the famous D-Day wall map used in June 1944 to plot the course of Operation Overlord can still be seen.
