National Army Museum



Chelsea's National Army Museum operates as not only the British Army's central museum, it is also a fascinating spot to learn more about conflict and war machinery used by the British in combat through the ages. This museum is designed to tell the overall story of the British Army as a whole, learn more about the people who served as part of it, and examine the impact the British Army has had on shaping the history of the UK and other parts of the world.

There are four permanent galleries, and a permanent Art Gallery. Apart from these permanent exhibitions, the Museum also runs special events and displays over the year in The White Space exhibition area. The Making of Britain 1066-1783, tells the story of the creation of Britain and its army, especially during these turbulent times. Not only were the British fighting amongst themselves, but were being attacked by outsiders. This gallery also shows the influence on colonial regions.

The Changing The World 1784-1904 exhibition looks even further at the relationship between Britain and other European powers, as they fight for control over land and sea. This is also a highly interactive exhibit, especially for kiddies.

During the World Wars of the twentieth century, Britain fought alongside its colonial allies and forces, and this exhibit shows not only how they worked together, but also the particular horrors associated with the early half of the century.
