NATIONAL ARMY MUSEUM
A Museum about people
Discover the story of the British Army and the men and women who have served in it. Find out about some of the most remarkable episodes in Britain's history and the experiences of the people involved in them. At the National Army Museum, we'll show you just how Britain's soldiers have lived and fought - from the middle ages, through two world wars, to the present day.
There's so much to see - from colourful uniforms and glittering swords to the very latest in military technology. Exhibits include portraits by Reynolds and Gainsborough, a lamp used by Florence Nightingale - even the skeleton of Napoleon's horse! Lifelike models range from one of Henry V's archers to an SAS trooper, while videos, photos, amazing anecdotes and a host of unusual personal relics bring the story of the British soldier vividly to life.
Our imaginative displays will give you a remarkable insight into the Army and its history. You can feel the weight of a Tudor cannonball, try on soldiers' helmets, survey the opposing forces on an enormous model of the Battle of Waterloo, explore a recreated First World War trench and even test your 'military skills' in a series of exciting computer challenges.
Admission to the Museum is free.
