The Gurkha Museum, Winchester Reviews

  • Incredible amount of information, artefacts and pictures. The dioramas are very dated and not very realistic. It could all do with refreshing and improving layout and lighting. Staff knowledgeable and charming

  • superb place to visit if you want to learn more about Gorkha history.

  • So much to look at . Takes me back to when I was a child and the Tattoo there . At least I think that's what it was called . The way it's been rejuvenated with the fountains etc are really lovely .

  • Great museum, lots of history character, well worth a visit.

  • Really interesting. Learnt a lot
