Suffolk Regiment Museum

We are located in the historic Keep, Gibraltar Barracks, Bury St Edmunds and have a gallery at Moyse’s Hall Museum in the centre of Bury St Edmunds. The displays record the regiment’s proud history from 1685 until amalgamation with the Royal Norfolk Regiment, in 1959.

The history of the Regiment continues through our successor, The Royal Anglian Regiment, whose museum is at IWM Duxford.

We are part of the Suffolk and Cambridgeshire Regiments Museum.
