Access to the Collection

Last updated: 9 May 2014

The National Army Museum is undertaking a major redevelopment project called 'Building for the Future'. This will see the radical redevelopment of the Chelsea building which will require it to close on 30 April 2014. A number of services will also be suspended in preparation for the project.

The Collection is moving

To prepare for this project, the National Army Museum is undertaking a major restructure of its Collection storage. This means that access to the Collection will be suspended from 30 April 2014. This programme of work forms part of the Museum’s ongoing Conservation Management Strategy to ensure the long-term safekeeping of the Collection and will run from September 2013 to September 2014.

The temporary closure of access will impact on a number of the Museum’s services. We apologies for any inconvenience caused during this period of vital works.

Enquiries about the Collection

The Museum's enquiry service is running at a reduced level until September 2014. Further information can be found on our Research Enquiries page.

NAM Chelsea - Templer Study Centre

The Templer Study Centre is closed. An interim service will be in operation from 1 September 2014. Further information will be featured on our Templer Study Centre page over the coming weeks.
