Military Museum of Devon and Dorset Museums
High West Street, Dorset
The Devonshire Regiment, The Dorset Regiment, The Devonshire and Dorset Regiment, The Dorset Yeomanry, The Queen's Own Dorset Yeomanry, The Dorset Militia, The Royal Devon Yeomanry and 94 Field Regiment RA are all represented in the Keep Museum which underwent major refurbishment in 1995.
Touch screen computers and videos together with creative displays tell the stories of courage, humour and sacrifice of the soldiers and their families who have served in the regiments of Devon and Dorset for over 300 years.
The medals, uniforms and weapons all bear silent witness to those of a bygone age and more recent conflicts.
The Museum has a small free car park for the use of Museum visitors only. This is at the side of the Museum. If this is full, there is a public car park adjacent to the Museum, for which a charge is made (pay and display machines). There is also a large car park in the market place, which is about 20 minutes walk from the Museum.
The only part of the museum that you cannot reach by wheelchair or pushchair is the roof!
Our four floors are all level and there is a wheelchair ramp to the shop door. We have a generously sized lift, with ample space for a wheelchair or pushchair. This is located in the corner of the shop.
Our shop and toilets are on the ground floor, and one toilet is equipped for wheelchairs. .
