Last updated: 17 November 2016

The National Army Museum is undertaking a major redevelopment project called Building for the Future. This includes the radical redevelopment of the Chelsea building which remains closed until Spring 2017.

Our Collections were temporarily housed at our Stevenage store during the redevelopment, but we have now begun the process of returning them to the Chelsea building in preparation for re-opening. While we undertake this move, we are providing a temporarily reduced Templer Study Centre service which will operate out of the Stevenage store until the Chelsea building re-opens.

Temporary service

The temporary service is provided on Thursdays only, and must be booked at least a week in advance to allow materials to be relocated for viewing. Reader's wishing to view materials from the Archives, Photographs and Books collections can do so by ordering the materials, with the proposed date of your visit, by email to:

Please ensure you have had a return email confirming the availability of the date and the materials you wish to view, prior to making arrangements for your visit.

New service coming soon

From Spring 2017 a brand new Templer Study Centre facility will be opening in the Chelsea building with improved facilities and expanded days of opening. Further information on how to access this facility will be provided closer to opening.

Please visit the Access to the Collection page for details on alternative ways you can view items from the Collection.
