Queen’s Royal Hussars Museum

About This Museum

The Queen’s Own Hussars museums is currently (January 2018) closed and a new one is currently being built, due to open in Warwick late 2019.

The comprehensive collection covers the history of the Regiment from its foundation in the late seventeenth century, with emphasis on both Horse and Tank warfare. Key events in the Regiment’s history, from the early Battles of Dettingen and Waterloo onwards, are vividly recreated through the personal stories of individuals and a mixture of artefacts, equipment, documentation and weapons. New displays employ computer technology to illustrate the change-over from horses to tanks, the Regiment’s decisive role at the Battle of El Alamein in WW2 and its global peace-keeping role to the present. Interactive displays include a state-of-the-art reconstruction of an Afrika Korps Observation Post and events at El Alamein.
