The Staffordshire Regiment Museum tells the story of the Staffordshire Regiment and all its antecedents from its formation in Lichfield in 1705. The Museum is situated alongside Whittington Barracks near Lichfield, the historical home of the Regiment, and houses a collection of around 11,000 items. The collection now includes items from the new Mercian Regiment. The Museum’s Royal Patron is His Royal Higness The Duke of York KCVO ADC. In 1999 the museum’s displays were refurbished and brought up to date, with plenty of “hands-on” exhibits for a wider, family audience. At the same time, a programme of temporary exhibitions was developed, allowing the use of the large reserve collection and featuring some of the Regiment’s finest actions, such as at Anzio and Arnhem.
The museum is open from 10am – 4pm, seven days a week, including Bank Holidays, with seasonal closures at Christmas/New Year period. During special events, the closing time may be extended. There are also occasional closures as circumstances dictate, such as when maintenance issues arise, or when the museum is being used for filming. When this occurs, we try to give as much notice as possible via social media.
