Are you a fan of old war memorabilia, or just wanting to take a history lesson? Then we’ve got the perfect activity for your stack – head on over to the Aldershot Military Museum, where you will find the only surviving brick-built barracks left in Aldershot!

Where is the Aldershot military museum?

You'll find the museum near the end of the road on Queen's avenue in Aldershot. If you're travelling from London, take the South Western Railway from Waterloo to Farnborough, then ride 10 stops on the 1 gold bus from Main Rail Station to Hammersley Road.

At the museum, you will get a chance to see what it was like to live in the times of 1854 and onwards. You will get a hands-on experience of exploring the vehicles that were used in battle, including the tanks, and will get to drive a miniature one at their amazing remote control tank track!

Aldershot - Did you know?

Farnborough, the borough home to Aldershot Military Museum, was the site of Britain’s first powered flight in 1908 by American Samuel Franklin Cody!


The museum also has galleries that you can visit, such as the local history gallery, where the story of the town Aldershot is told and find out why it goes by the name of “Home of the British army”, as well as the military history gallery. For the kids, there is a small and fun-sized version of a world war 2 training course! The museum has something for everyone!
