Re-opened in mid 2011, following a major refurbishment, the Museum of Lancashire contains the museums of two historic regiments. The gallery of the 14th/20th King’s Hussars traces the history of the Regiment from 1715 and includes two Victoria crosses as well as artefacts from the Napoleonic era and India.

The Duke of Lancaster’s Own Yeomanry collection marks its association with the county with exhibits that include items from World War I in the Middle East, Peterloo, and South Africa. Mounted in co- operation with the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment and Lancashire Fusiliers a new area follows Lancastrians in World War I, and includes a trench scene with many of the devices of trench warfare as well as Imperial War Museum film footage. There is also a display on the Home Front in Lancashire during the Second World War.
