Here at the Royal Engineers Museum we are constantly looking to improve our services. We are currently upgrading heating and electrics in the building as well as replacing a leaking roof. This means that we have had to close the main Museum building. However, we have opened our Bridging Gallery for the first time to general visitors and have a temporary exhibition on the Battle of the Somme – so there is still plenty to see!

Because of this reduced space we are free to visit all year, including our great range of children’s activities which run throughout school holidays.

The Bridge Study Centre:
Bridging has been an essential part of warfare for thousands of years. In this gallery the full history of military bridging is explored. Hands on activities from our Sapper Workshop and dressing up are also available for kids.

The main Museum car park is closed. There is limited parking available at the King Charles Hotel car park (included a disabled parking bay) which is opposite the temporary Museum entrance. Please note a pass will be needed and should be collected from staff in the Bridge Study Centre and displayed in your vehicle. An overflow carpark is sign-posted and is a 5 minute walk from the temporary Museum. Click here for a map.

Access to the Library is unaffected by this work and research visit should be booked two weeks in advance, as per existing procedures.

Annual Ticket Holders:
Visitor with an Annual Ticket should contact the Museum on 01634 822839 for information on extending its validity.
