  • Visitor Information

Buried within the walls of the Tower of London this small, curious museum chronicles the history of the Royal Fusiliers Regiment. Every campaign the regiment fought is faithfully retold from its earliest battle to present day combat.

Poignant paintings, threadbare uniforms and the odd Victoria Cross serve as a compelling reminder of the regiment’s gallant but tragic past. The most remarkable feature is the meticulously detailed miniature of the Peninsular War.

The museum is accessible via the main entrance of the Tower of London and unfortunately there is an additional charge on top of the Tower's main entrance fee.
