The National Army Museum is the British Army's own museum. It is the only museum to tell the story of the Army as a whole from Agincourt in the Fifteenth Century to peace-keeping in the Twenty-first Century.

The National Army Museum in Chelsea houses some of Britain's finest military treasures. As well as chronicling the campaigns and battles fought by the British over the last 500 years the Museum's displays illustrate the social history of the British Army from Tudor times to the present day, offering a unique insight into the lives and experiences of its soldiers. Throughout the Museum paintings, photographs, uniforms and equipment are combined with reconstructions and life-size models to bring the soldier's story vividly to life.

Over two hundred records from the Museum's Collection of Oil Paintings. While some of these items are on public display in the galleries at the Museum's Chelsea site others are displayed at the Museum's out-station at Sandhurst or form part of the Museum's Study Collection.

Over eighty vehicles and artillery pieces. The records displayed here show only part of the National Army Museum's collection of vehicles and artillery.

Access to each gallery is provided by ramps and lifts. Our teaching spaces are accessible to wheelchair users. For more information please telephone 020 7730 0717 ext 2243.
