The York Army Museum

The museum curates two collections from serving regiments, The Royal Dragoon Guards (1992 - ) and The Yorkshire Regiment (2006 - ). We hold the regimental collections for all of The Royal Dragoon Guards’ antecedents, and the collection of Prince of Wales’s Own Regiment of Yorkshire for the Yorkshire Regiment. The collections of the Yorkshire Regiment’s other antecedents, The Green Howards and the Duke of Wellington’s Own, can be seen at their regimental museums in Richmond and Halifax respectively. You can find out more about our regimental collections on The Royal Dragoon Guards and Yorkshire Regiment website.
