Description:
The Museum is housed in the heart of Lancashire, in the traditional home of the old county infantry regiments in Fulwood Barracks, Preston.

We preserve for posterity the achievements, records and artefacts of those historic infantry regiments of Lancashire which now form part of The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment, created in 2006 by the amalgamation of The Kings Own Royal Border, Kings and Queen’s Lancashire Regiments. We are also proud to be officially responsible for collecting and collating historical material relating to the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment itself.

Learning Programmes:
Working in conjunction with Lancashire County Council, the Lancashire Infantry Museum provides unique and historically-authentic locations for interactive learning. At present interactive education sessions for pupils studying World War I at KS2 and KS3 are offered, but it is intended that new sessions covering World War II at the same levels will be available in the near future.

A Call To Arms (KS2 and KS3 - 2 hours)
Through active participation, role play and experience-based learning, take a fresh new look at World War I, within our unique and inspiring venue.​


Specialisms:
We have everything from early action such as the American War of Independence, to items used during modern day conflicts such as Afghanistan.
