The National Army Museum's Learning Department is staffed by a team of dedicated teachers and museum educators who combine their extensive experience in schools and heritage sites to give you the award-winning service you need. What's more, the service is absolutely free.

Spring Term 2014

Owing to exceptionally high levels of demand, the NAM Learning schools programme is fully booked for the rest of the Spring Term.

Summer Term 2014

The Museum is undertaking a major redevelopment of the Chelsea site in 2014-16. In Spring 2014 we will learn whether our funding application has been successful, so to avoid unnecessary cancellations and confusion we have decided to suspend the formal learning programme for the Summer Term pending that announcement.

If the redevelopment goes ahead, the Learning Department will offer outreach programmes to schools in local London boroughs in partnership with Westminster Archives and Hackney Music Development Trust, as well as programmes linked to certain Regimental and Corps Museums around the country, starting in September 2014. Further details of outreach programmes, and how to book them, will be made available from April 2014.
