Historic military and other exhibits abound at The Wight Military and Heritage Museum in Northwood. Situated on the main Cowes to Newport road the museum will immerse you in a world of human success over adversity.
The museum holds an interesting mix of tanks, artifacts, other vehicles, small arms and a range of uniforms from the 19th century to the present day. Learn about life in wartime and about those who contributed so much to the war effort as you investigate the replica street scene and other exhibits.
Guided tours are generally available from our ex-service volunteers who, with their varied experiences and anecdotes, really contribute to the enjoyment of the displays!
Adults and children of all ages can experience the surge of adrenaline on an armoured vehicle ride around the display track. Phone ahead for availability. We boast the only “knife edge” feature in the country ( at time of writing ).
There is also a covered air rifle range to test your shooting skills and a fully stocked gift shop with some very unusual items.
When that is all done, enjoy refreshments in Churchills our on-site tea room.
Call 01983 632039 for more details.
Dog-friendly site, pets welcome everywhere when kept on a lead.
So come on everybody, come along to the Wight Military and Heritage Museum where you will be welcomed with open arms by our volunteer team.
The museum is a registered charity number 1159529 and any profit made will go to Armed Service and related charities.
