The museum tells the story of the Warwickshire Yeomanry from its origin in 1794 to amalgamation in 1956 with the Queen's Own Worcestershire Hussars.
What are the Friend's aims?
To promote, support and improve the Warwickshire Yeomanry Museum. To create worldwide interest in the museum and the present serving organisations. To improve public awareness of the museum and to stimulate positive public relations. To forge improved links with the local community, business, educational and civic organisations. The Friend's income is used to support the museum in any way possible, including helping to buy important relics and research material. However, it should be emphasized the 'Friends of the Museum' is not primarily a fund raising organisation, but a group of people interested in helping to promote the fortunes of the museum.

Friends Achievements in 2015.
The Friends Have been very busy working on the improvements to the museum and helping with manning the museum.
We have a new friend Adrian an Ex Mercian Yeoman who has been attending for over 8 days during the year with a experienced assistant curator, we are happy to say that he now has the ability to share responsibilities with any other curator in the museum. Well done Adrian.
We still need more volunteers, so if you want to be an active Friend and assistant curator please come forward, we always help and stay with our new volunteers until they know the ropes and even then we share with them for many months even years until they are ready to go it on there own, showing and sharing with other new assistant curators.
