Soldiers of Shropshire Museum

Castle Court, Castle St, Shrewsbury SY1 2AT

The Soldiers of Shropshire Museum at Shrewsbury Castle is host to a journey through nearly 300 years of British Army Evolution, seen through the eyes, campaigns
and sacrifices of Shropshire Soldiers.
The museum displays the significant collections of the Shropshire regiments between 1755 and 1968, and including the formation of the Light Infantry, The Rifles and The Queen’s Own Mercian Yeomanry from 1968 to the present day.
Three floors of displays tell the story of Shropshire Soldiers in war and peace, at home and abroad, from their formation to the present day.
We have a wide variety of family friendly activities, a fantastic evening lecture series and hold a spectacular collection of uniforms, medals, weapons and silverware
We are partnered with Shropshire Archives to provide researchers with both online and archive search and soldier records for family history research.
We have an excellent, comprehensive gift shop online and at the Castle selling a wide variety of unique gifts.
