Army museums are an important part of any country’s heritage, yet how many people have visited one? Unless you have immediate connections to the army, you may not even consider it. However, there are many reasons why you should consider visiting a British army museum.
A visit to the museum will help broaden your knowledge of the British army campaigns of the past – the successes and failures – the heroes and leaders. You can find inspiration in the stories of selflessness and feel sadness at the losses of life. It can be educational for young and old alike.
See examples of uniforms and weapons, look at the photographs and trench art, and read the moving accounts of life at war.
Children can see history come to life better than they can in a classroom, and those who have lived through a war can reminisce and learn more.
