Carlisle Castle is home to the Cumbria Museum of Military Life, which tells the 300-year story of Cumbria’s County Infantry Regiment and its soldiers past and present.
You can see a huge variety of items including uniforms, medals, weapons and silver as well as interactive displays and dioramas. The new state of the art exhibition features a First World War trench environment, immersive audio/visual displays and an interactive trail for young people.
The Museum is NOT included in the Castles admission. Visitors to the Museum do not need to pay at the Castle gatehouse and can freely walk through the Castle gate if wishing to just visit the Museum.
