Regimental Museum, Cornwall: The museum was started in the Depot in 1925. Since then it has expanded considerably and now occupies the old Quarter Master's Stores on the first floor of The Keep. It is divided into two parts: the Main Historical Gallery and the Armoury.

The Main Historical Gallery traces the history of the Regiment from its formation in 1702 to its amalgamation with the Somerset Light Infantry in 1950. The may wars and campaigns are put into the perspective of the history of the United Kingdom by means of explanations, maps, pictures and artefacts.

The Armoury contains one of the finest private collections of small arms and machine guns. Also shown are many of the colourful uniforms worn by the Regiment before 1914, together with a remarkable display of decorations and medals.
