Cumbria’s Museum of Military Life in Carlisle

Home to over 300 years of military history, this museum is a brilliant addition to a day out in Carlisle! The museum has stories and artefacts from many regiments from Cumbria and the Borders and highlights the importance and link between the military and the local community, especially in this area of the country!

Where is Cumbria's Museum of Military Life?

The museum is on the grounds of Carlisle Castle so is right in the heart of Carlisle! It is only a very short walk from Carlisle Station.

The museum is relatively new due to being relocated out of the castle but this has only improved it and made it easier for them to display their exhibits. Also entrance to the museum comes free with a ticket to the castle so there’s little reason not to visit if you’re in the city!
