New Museum

Last updated: 22 September 2016

We're in the final stages of our transformation to create an inspiring museum that connects people to the British Army.

With state-of-the-art galleries, learning and research facilities, and a refreshed café, shop and children's play area, we’re looking forward to welcoming you.

We remain open through our programme of events held at venues throughout London.
