The Lancashire Infantry Museum is the premier centre for historical research in Lancashire and the whole of northern England. Inside it holds the largest and most important Infantry Regimental collections in the country.

Extensive historic military collections

The Lancashire Infantry Museum's military history library, displays, and archives illustrate the fascinating story of the East, South, and Loyal North Lancashire Regiments. Records go as far back as 1689, all the way to the achievements of the 'Lancashire Lads' of the 21st Century. Collections are housed at Fulwood Barracks, the traditional home of the former county infantry regiments. The friendly museum team are dedicated to preserving the achievements, records, and artefacts of Lancashire's proud historic regiments.

The Salamanca Eagle can also be seen on display at the Museum. The Eagle is the finest and most important military trophy in the possession of the Lancashire Infantry Museum and is listed by the Home Office as a British National Treasure.

Lancashire Infantry Museum is officially responsible for collecting and collating historical material relating to the new unified Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, created in 2006. It does this while continuing to cherish the heritage of 120 separate units, including 59 battalions formed by Lancashire regiments during the First World War.
