Intelligence Corps Museum
The Military Intelligence Museum at Chicksands consists of
- The Intelligence Corps museum
- The Medmenham Collection of air photography

The Intelligence Corps was formed on 19 July 1940 but its antecedents stretch back to 16th century. The museum was set up in 1971 in Ashford, Kent and relocated along with the Intelligence Corps in 1997 to its present site. There are exciting plans for a redevelopment of the diplays but we will remain open to the public throughout the project.
