CHANGE OF ADDRESS
Our address has been changed. It is now:
The Keep Military Museum
The Musuem has not moved location; we are still in the same place and the Royal Mail assure us that any mail sent to the former Bridport Road address will still reach us.
Summer opening hours commence on Tuesday 1st April 2014:
Monday - Saturday inclusive: 10am - 5pm
These hours remain in operation until 30th September 2014.
Please allow 4-8 weeks for the completion of research queries due to the sheer volume of enquiries received. We will try to complete work in a much shorter time frame but this cannot be guaranteed. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
We rely on entirely on donations to build up our collection and are very grateful for everything which is given to us.
If you wish to come in and see specific items that you, or a member of your family, has donated, please give us a few days notice. This will enable us to have the items ready for you to see and ensure that there is a member of staff or a researcher ready to attend to you. Thank you for your understanding.
