Nice place to learn some more about the Gurkha history. The museum content consists mostly of uniform displays, pictures of the different regiments (also their sport tournaments and other non-war related stuff so that's interesting), and texts about battles/important Gurkha's.

Nice little museum. It has 3 floors. Good collection of photos and artifacts of world wars and more than 200 yrs of history. There is also a nice store to buy Tshirts, kukri etc.. Low entrance fees. Worth a visit

It is worth a visit to remind yourself how much this tiny nation has given to ours - there are so many VCs in this museum it makes you feel humble.

If you are interested in military history or the history of the British brigades of Gurkhas, this is the place. Also, the gift shop sells high quality military standard Kukris for much less than tourist stands sell lower quality tourist models.

Right across the street from Seti River Gorge, it is an army memorial museum. Can be visited in 30 minutes though if one really want to read all the information it will take upto 2 hours.

The museum is comprehensive and covers all regiments in British, Indian and Nepalese forces. I had the honour of serving in the 6th Gurkha Rifles many years ago and was very impressed by the historical accuracy of the content. Jai Sixth!
