Hampshire Museums

The Collections

The museum has a collection of vehicles, displayed either in the Montgomery Gallery, or outside the museum. There is an active programme of restoration on the vehicles by the museum's volunteer Vehicle group.

Most of the vehicles work and some are registered for road use, enabling them to travel to outside events. Some of the vehicles may not be on display, owing to conservation work. There are uniforms, badges, medals, weapons, furniture and other equipment which illustrate typical equipment used by regiments that have been stationed in Aldershot. It includes vehicles tested and evaluated on the local training areas from the Army's Fighting Vehicles Research and Development Establishment (FVRDE) which was nearby. There is also a variety of local and social history material ranging from bus tickets to sewing machines.
