The 10th Anniversary of the Museum opening at Thoresby
26th July 2021
The museum was opened by HRH Princess Alexandra on Tuesday 26th July 2011, and marked the beginning of the partnership between the Royal Lancers and the Nottinghamshire Yeomanry – the Sherwood Rangers and the South Notts Hussars.
Since then over 290,000 visitors have toured this fascinating new display.
The museum tells the story of cavalry in the British Army, from the days of the horseback charge, through the great tank battles of the Second World War, to present-day operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
A series of graphic panels and display cases, learning zones and video presentations, take visitors through our fascinating story.
Entry to the museum is free.
Establishing our new museum at Thoresby was made possible by a partnership with the Stonebridge Trust, which provided space in the Courtyard and contributed to the capital costs, the Leader Project, which provides European funds for rural regeneration, and the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project is also supported by Friends of the Museum
