Green Howards Museum reopens after £1.7m revamp
Following the recent The Royal Lancers amalgamation parade in Richmond attended by Her Majesty The Queen, another Military regiment is celebrating a different milestone. The Green Howards Museum, located in Richmond Market Place, has reopened to the public following a £1.7m refurbishment funded in part by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The Green Howards were an infantry unit that served the country for 318 years before being amalgamated into the Yorkshire Regiment in 2006. The museum brings their history to life, boasting over 35,000 objects that are constantly rotated to create an “ever-evolving display”. Notable pieces include 15 Victoria Crosses, an array of weaponry, uniforms and personal items that help to tell the human story behind the regiment.
The Museum is open Monday – Saturday from 10am to 4:30pm. Admission information can be found here.
