Admission tickets and booking your visit
We have introduced advanced booking to Aldershot Military Museum to help us manage our visitor numbers. You need to purchase an admission ticket and book a visiting time. Booking your visiting time is free. If you already have an admission ticket, you do not need to pay again, but you do need to book a time to visit. Please book a visiting time for each member of your party, including children.
Your visit will give you two hours to explore the museum and its grounds. Your tour around the museum will take approximately one hour to complete, ending back at the car park. You are then welcome to use our outdoor seating areas. A member of our team will advise all visitors using our outdoor space when your visit is coming to an end.
Please do not visit if you or any members of your household are showing symptoms of COVID-19 or if you have been in contact with anyone who has it. Information on how to re-book or cancel your visit is detailed on your booking confirmation.
Our opening days and hours are available to view online. Please check before you visit.
Social distancing and hygiene
During your visit, we ask that you follow our guidelines on social distancing and hygiene to help keep us all safe. We are operating a one-way system at Aldershot Military Museum, which is indicated by signage. Hand sanitiser stations are positioned at the entrances and exits of each of the museum's buildings. To keep everyone safe, please wear a face covering when visiting Aldershot Military Museum.
