In 1993 a group of like-minded enthusiasts got together and came up with the idea for the Isle of Wight Military History Museum. After a number of meetings and discussions the decision was made to go ahead with the project. A suitable site was found along the Newport to Cowes Road which was perfect because it used to be the old army camp. A design for the museum had been finalised, and after two years’ delay permission was finally granted. Since then a lot of work has gone into making the museum a reality and finally we saw the initial opening in August 2003. To this day the Museum is still going strong thanks to all its visitors and support from local enthusiasts. (Source: IOWMHM).
