THE MUSEUM IS CLOSED FROM NOVEMBER 2011 UNTIL THE SPRING OF 2013. Yes, the Spring of 2013 consequent upon the Warwick Town Council and the Warwickshire Yeomanry Museum Trust making a successful joint bid for Heritage Lottery Funding of 368k. Renovations to the Grade 1 Listed Court House will commence in 2012. The grant will also pay for conservation works to the Yeomanry Museum located in the basement of the Court House by improving environmental conditions for its collections and making them more accessible to the public. The Museum will re-open in the Spring of 2013. The museum covers the history of the Warwickshire Yeomanry from 1794 to 1956 with a collection of uniforms, weapons, medals and memorabilia. The Warwickshire Yeomanry together with the Queen's Own Worcestershire Hussars (Worcestershire Yeomanry) took part in the Affair of Huj on 8th November 1917 - the last classic unsupported Cavalry Charge of the Great War in Palestine immortalised by Lady Butler's painting which is on display in the museum. One of the 75mm Krupps Guns captured that day is also displayed in the museum. Much of the regimental library and archive will be held in storage until the Museum re-opens in 2013. A limited research service will be provided via the Museum website. The curator and the archivist, MR JP Wilson are contactable via the website.
