Important note: The National Army Museum will be closed until 2016.

The National Army Museum was originally located at Sandhurst and moved to its present position in 1971. It now sits alongside the Chelsea Royal Hospital.

The exhibits begin in the early 16th-century with a fine collection of weapons, books and photographs. Tactics are discussed with fine maps and lessons, and there is a detailed history of the British Redcoat from Agincourt to 1800.

Space is also given over to the everyday life of a soldier with their uniforms, equipment and living kit.

The National Army Museum’s best exhibits include the skeletal remains of Napoleon’s horse – Marengo – and a cross-section of a World War I trench. There is also a spectacular model of the Battle of Waterloo at 7.15PM on 28th June 1815 – a pivotal moment in European history.

  • ian meyer – “This is like a poor man's imperial war museum. It covers the same sort of stuff all the way up to world war ii. I didn't think the place was going to be so bug, but there's quite a lot of stuff there but unfortunatly the display aren't as good as the iwm. Most of the stuff on display is uniforms, medals and paintings of battles. I much prefer all the full-size vehicles that the imperial war museum has got. This is just in a 30-storey building so they dont… more”
