Bodmin Keep is now closed until further notice. We look forward to reopening when we are able and it is safe to do so.  

During the closed period the museum team will be busy working on new displays and creating outreach resources.

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.
