SOLDIER MUSEUM

There are countless miniature battles taking place at Houghton Hall. The Soldier Museum, housed in its own building, is the largest private collection of model soldiers in the world. It was started by the 6th Marquess of Cholmondeley as a school boy, and he continued collecting throughout his life, often commissioning whole scenes to his specification.

The museum shows many reconstructions of battles, such as Waterloo and Omdurman, as well as displaying a selection of paintings and militaria.
