THE KEEP

Bodmin Keep is over 160 years old and is the historic home of the Army in Cornwall.  This former headquarters of the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry houses the museum, with more than three hundred years of military history, a library and meeting rooms. 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.

The museum and its collections have been developed over many years by dedicated people, with the support of many funding bodies. The museum stands as a testament to our soldiers, their families and communities. Looking to the future, our vision is to take the museum onto even greater things and make it a great place for telling stories and learning about our heritage.
