These sessions have been devised to last between 30 and 45 minutes. Their aim is to be informative, yet light-hearted.
The Museum building isn’t really suited to giving guided tours, so why not book a short talk explaining how the National Army Museum came into being, and how to find your way around.
A fascinating talk using images and objects from the Collection to bring to life some of the words and phrases we use today that originated in the Army.
Discover how the Army has used pigeons, dogs, camels and even elephants in its long and colourful history.
A thousand years in thirty minutes! Find out how the Army evolved from its medieval origins all the way through to the modern day, using images, kit, equipment and weaponry from the Museum’s extensive handling collection.
The British Army has been in Afghanistan several times over the last 160 years: a shared history we've forgotten, and Afghanistan hasn't. This talk covers the main campaigns up to the modern day, and looks at the way the Army (and Afghanistan) has changed over time.
Youth groups are welcome to book and visit the Museum at any time. Sessions are available free of charge during the school holidays or for after-school clubs.
Some adaptation may be necessary depending on the size and make up of your group. Please contact us to discuss this.
