The only Ministry of Defence building that remains on the old Victoria Barracks site, and is one of Bodmin’s most important historic buildings which dates from 1859. It is the historic home of the Army in Cornwall. The former headquarters of the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry houses the museum, with more than 300 years of military history. Each of the 12,000 collection items has its own story to tell. Stories about the battles that have been fought, weapons that were used or personal letters that were written on the battlefield.
