Take a look around the Museum

The Museum features more than thirty display cases, arranged chronologically and thematically to tell the story of the Regiment and its antecedents, from their inception in 1685 to the present day. The Museum also has an ongoing programme of exhibitions, which will be displayed in its small temporary exhibition area.

Below are some small images of our collection.

Following a major improvement programme, financed by the Heritage Lottery Fund, we hope that the Museum will meet all visitors’ expectations; however, we welcome feedback, positive or negative.

My grandfather was William Pearce an RSM in the 7th dragoon guards. His medals were donated to the museum. I never met William, but my dad used to tell me stories about him. He also showed me his medals. He saw service in India, Sudan, the boer war and the Great War , I am wanting to come to York to visit the museum and if possible to find out more about him. The planned visit is around the 13-14 July. Is this possible please?

my grandfather was Frank Patrick Kehoe, he was a colour sergeant in the 7th (Princess Poyals) Dragoon Guards. My father donated my grandfathers medals for display purposes, and I believe they are within the regiment museum in York. Could you please let me know if they are on display so I can arrange to see them?
