The Kent and Sharpshooters Yeomanry Museum was formed in 1966 to preserve the existing property of the regiment, mainly comprising pictures and silver. It was moved to Hever Castle in 1985 at the top room in the Keep. After a fundraising campaign, it is now housed in its own building since 2015 in the grounds of the castle. The new Museum follows the history of the regiments from 1794, when the Kent Yeomanry was formed by part time volunteers to defend against possible invasion by the French.
