It was very exciting, interesting, motivating and informative for the students as well as for the teachers of APS Mathura. Although most of them are from Army background  and are being  nurtured and brought up in that atmosphere but still they witnessed many more new and interesting facts and things there which aroused their desire to join the Indian Army and to serve their country. Their queries were satisfied by the guides escorting the team.

Strike One Corps has set up this museum to mark the completion of glorious 50 years of the formation of the Core Mathura Cantonment. In 50 years the corps soldiers fought in two memorable wars with gallantry, valour and courageously sacrificed their precious lives.

The museum is equipped with the historic arms and ammunitions of the great two Indo-Pak wars and the lively pictures of war are narrating the story of bravery, courage and sacrifice of our brave commanders and soldiers.
