The Fusilier Museum tells the fascinating story of The Lancashire Fusiliers from 1688 to 1968, when they became part of The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. The museum also continues the story for the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers up to the present day through a series of exhibitions both permanent and temporary and a varied programme of events.

The museum itself has a long history of its own. It first opened its doors to the public at Wellington Barracks in 1934. After many years of fundraising by the board of Trustees in the early 2000’s and searching for bigger premises the museum then moved to its current location on Moss Street in Bury town centre. It first opened its doors on St George’s Day, 2009 but was officially opened by HRH the Duke of Kent later in the year.

The total cost of the relocation project exceeded £4.2 million with £1m of the funding being provided by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

In 2014 the museum further enhanced its offering by completing phase 2, a £1.4m funded redevelopment of the top floor which included a new state-of-the-art conference and events space The Minden Suite, The Quartermaster’s Store a new open store to house the museum’s collection and the re-location of The Fusilier Archive.

There is also lots to see and do in Bury Town Centre. The museum is located in heart of the Cultural Quarter and only a few minutes’ walk from the East Lancashire Railway, The Met Theatre, The Transport Museum, Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre, Bury Parish Church and the world famous Bury Market.
