Museum Refurbishment 2011

During the months of December and January, the museum is closed to the public, but this can be our busiest time of the year. While there are no members of the public viewing the displays, this gives us the opportunity to make any alterations, which usually involves painting scenery in the cases, dressing new mannequins and moving artefacts, including weapons.

This year we have been busy creating a new, permanent display about the war in Afghanistan from 2005 until today in which the Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment (RGBW) and later the Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Light Infantry (RGBWLI), and The Rifles have taken part.

The new Temporary Exhibition for 2011, as yet untitled will be about soldiers' innovative ideas and inventions and will be open in time for Easter.

The museum reopens to the public on Tuesday 1st February.
