The Adjutant General’s Corps Museum is located in the former guardroom of Peninsula Barracks at the top of Winchester’s High Street, and forms part of Winchester’s Military Museums. There is limited, free parking with a permit, and the building is located within a 10-minute walk from Winchester train station and a 5-minute walk from the nearest bus stop near the Westgate pub.
The Museum tells the story of the modern Adjutant General’s Corps (AGC) and the antecedent Corps. The AGC is relatively young, created in 1992 from the amalgamation of the Royal Army Pay Corps (RAPC), the Royal Army Educational Corps (RAEC), the Corps of the Royal Military Police (RMP), the Army Legal Corps (ALC), the Military Provost Staff Corps (MPSC) and the Women’s Royal Army Corps (WRAC). The Royal Military Police have their own museum at Southwick Park, and the Military Provost Staff Corps Association have a historic collection in Colchester. Our main collection consists of items of the Royal Army Pay Corps, the Royal Army Educational Corps and the Women’s Royal Army Corps. If you are looking for information on the RMP or MPSC, please go to the Useful Links page.
If you have an interest in specific objects or have any historical enquiries, please contact the museum at least five working days before visiting. The reserve collection is not open to the public and is not held on site. The Adjutant General’s Corps Museum does not provide evaluations and does not accept firearms or ordnance without prior discussion with the curator or without the relevant paperwork accompanying the object. The museum does not accept the donation of material for the collection or archives without prior discussion with the curator.
Museum staff are happy to provide pre-booked guided tours for group visits, whether as a visit to this museum or as part of a visit to the rest of Winchester’s Military Museums. As the space is very limited, the museum can only accommodate groups of up to 15 people at any one time.
Educational visits are provided as part of Winchester’s Military Museums’ education programme. Please visit the useful links page to visit the WMM website for further information.
