Security

Fulwood Barracks has been an important military establishment since 1848 and remains so today. Visitors to the Museum are therefore to required to check in at the Barracks Main Gate.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ADULT VISITORS WILL BE ASKED TO PRODUCE POSITIVE PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION, SUCH AS A UK PHOTO-ID DRIVING LICENCE.

Security is always important but at times there may be a need for increased vigilance. This may result in some restriction on visitors or even alterations to opening times, at short notice.
