It is an army memorial museum also know as Gorkha Memorial. Can be seen quickly in 30 minutes though if one wants to read all the information, needs 2 hours.

As an Hon member of 2nd Gurkha I recommend a visit to this comprehensive museum dedicated to all Gurkha past and present. Several floors takes you from the early days of the regiment right up to present times.
