National Army Museum

The National Army Museum explores the story of the British Army, past and present. The museum is open every day 10am-5:30pm, free entry. Visit us today!

The National Army Museum is a leading authority on the British Army and its impact on society past and present.  We examine the Army's role from the British Civil Wars to the modern day. Through our collections we preserve and share stories of ordinary people with extraordinary responsibilities. We explore the role of the Army and its relevance today. We aim to be a first class museum that moves, inspires, challenges, educates and entertains.

The National Army Museum is a fun, interactive space for all the family. Our engaging museum experience reaches out to all. We want to connect the British public with its army, regardless of age, gender, race and religion.The National Army Museum is for everyone, no matter what they think about the British Army. We showcase the breadth and depth of our collections in new and engaging ways. We explore thoughts and ideas as well as real stories of real people. And we challenge the way people think about the Army and their relationship with it.
