Bodmin Keep welcomes visitors from Tuesday to Saturday, 10AM – 5PM (last entry 4pm).

Pre-booking is not required apart from the Half term Holiday 22nd – 26th February which you can book via Eventbrite.

We would prefer that visitors wear a mask throughout their visit to protect themselves, other visitors, volunteers and staff.

We look forward to welcoming you to the museum!

Online Shop

We have some great gifts in our online museum shop! From books to children’s gifts and souvenirs.

It’s a great way of supporting the museum when you are unable to visit or need a gift for someone special.

One of the best, if not the best military museum in the Country.  Steeped in history from days gone by of the Light Infantry to modern day… well worth a visit.
