Household Cavalry MuseumVisitors to the Household Cavalry Museum can watch troopers working with their horses in the original 18th century stables (via a glazed screen) and hear accounts of their demanding training. At different times of the day there's always something to see - whether it's the horses being fed and watered or having their hooves oiled and checked. Once a day, you can see them in action at the Changing of the Queen's Life Guard which takes place on Horse Guards Parade at 11am, in addition to the daily inspection at 4pm. Within the museum children can make believe they're part of the cavalry with the dressing up area where they can try on helmets, combat jackets and other military uniforms. There are also children's trails and a fun touch-screen horse quiz. The museum has an outstanding collection of treasures from ceremonial uniforms, Royal Standards and gallantry awards to musical instruments, horse furniture and jewelled boxes by Faberge. These have been amassed over the centuries and each exhibit has its own compelling story to tell, brought to life using a mix of graphics, audio visual and interactive displays.
