What a brilliant museum. Full of interesting artefacts, not just from the Suffolk Regiment. The volunteers who staff the museum (we went on the first Sunday in March 2017) were friendly and very knowledgeable. Please visit and keep this excellent museum going.

Called in here by chance as i noticed it was open when I was passing by. This place is a treasure trove of historical articles covering a very important 'local' contribution to the defence of the country. A must visit - lest we forget.

Very impressed with the level and range of artifacts. Clearly well cared for, great presentation covering a wide range of military campaigns. My grandfather served in the Suffolks in WWI so it was especially pleasing to see.

This is a must see in Bury. Very interesting, very thought provoking and very poignant. Many of my family members were in the Regiment and the museum brings them to mind and draws them closer. Moving, to say the least.
