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 as protector, aggressor and peacekeeper 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 new National Army Museum is for everyone, no matter what they think about the British Army.

So what's new? We now 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 British Army and their relationship with it.

  • My husband is a history buff and a bit of a military nerd. He loved this museum. I enjoyed myself thoroughly as well even though I typically don’t enjoy the subject matter as much as say an art museum. The exhibits are extremely well done and very modern. Some of the technology used is very clever.
  • The history of the British Army, the ups and the downs! Well thought out displays, and helpful guides, there are some amazing artifacts here, find the old penny that saved a soldier's life,and the cap with bullet holes...the owner survived. Nice shop, and decent restaurant, free to enter, but donation welcome.
