York Army Museum is home to the collections of the Royal Dragoon Guards and the Prince of Wales’s Own Regiment of Yorkshire. Through these we tell the story of the British Army and its importance for Yorkshire in the last 300 years.
The museum tells the stories of British Army soldiers from 1685 to the present day. We are home to some of the most important regimental collections in the UK.
The museum curates two collections from serving regiments, The Royal Dragoon Guards (1992 – ) and The Yorkshire Regiment (2006 – ). We hold the regimental collections for all of The Royal Dragoon Guards’ antecedents, and the collection of Prince of Wales’s Own Regiment of Yorkshire for the Yorkshire Regiment. The collections of the Yorkshire Regiment’s other antecedents, The Green Howards and the Duke of Wellington’s Own, can be seen at their regimental museums in Richmond and Halifax respectively. You can find out more our regimental collections on The Royal Dragoon Guards and Yorkshire Regiment sections of the website.
