Access to selected items from the Collection of the National Army Museum is provided free of charge through permanent galleries, a programme of special displays, events and education programmes.
Access to the paper-based collections is provided without charge in the Templer Study Centre.
Access to the remaining stored collections is primarily through the information provided by the central computer catalogue (the Cabal database), and also in publications - websites, catalogues, books, and articles. Direct access to these items is by prior appointment.
Requests for access to three-dimensional items that are not on display can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please give at least two weeks' notice of when you would like to see them.
Much of the Collection is housed at the Museum's Out-station at Stevenage (Hertfordshire). Visitors may be asked to view items at this site, which is 33 miles from Chelsea.
The Museum meets its obligations to provide information about the Collection under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, but where certain costs are incurred in so doing it is entitled to make a charge.
For information about borrowing items from the Collection, please visit our Guide to Borrowing from the National Army Museum.
Where information is not already available, enquires about the Museum's Collection can be sent to email@example.com. Enquiries will be answered in order of receipt within 20 working days, as required by the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Further information can be found on our Research Enquiries page.
If you have a disability or specific access requirement, please make this clear in your initial enquiry so that your needs can be met or reasonable adjustments can be made where possible.
The Templer Study Centre is located on the Lower Ground Floor of the Museum, next to the Lecture Theatre. You can access the Templer Study Centre via the platform lift from the Ground Floor (main entrance level) and Lower Ground Floor (car park level). An induction loop has been installed in the Templer Study Centre.
There are two disabled parking bays available in the car park and ramped access to the main entrance and ground floor where items may be viewed. Also on the ground floor are two accessible toilets.
