About The National Army Museum:

The National Army Museum has five floors of exhibits showing the history of the British Army and its impact on others. There are four permanent gallery displays and an extensive program of exhibitions, events, and activities.

The National Army Museum realizes some people may not agree with wars so they intend to simply present historical facts. There are four permanent galleries and a program of changing temporary exhibitions.

The building is clean and modern and is fully accessible. A wheelchair is available from the Main Entrance, if required.

The museum is very popular with children, particularly the Kid's Zone which is a safe space for the under 10s to have fun. You simply ask for a free ticket from the information desk and you get a timed entry and 50 minutes of fun. (Ten minutes is set aside for cleaning between each session.)

There is a Costa Coffee cafe which serves seasonal food and kid's meals. At the weekend, you can bring a packed lunch and use the Lunchroom area.
