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.

Schools, Groups and Armed Forces learning offers at Chelsea suspended

This project will provide the Museum with new learning opportunities through enhanced education and Collection storage facilities. The changes to the Chelsea site will enable us to provide dedicated learning facilities for the first time. Included will be specialist teaching spaces, a new lunchroom and an adapted schools entrance.

From September 2014 we will be taking our services on the road, offering outreach programmes to schools in local London boroughs, in partnership with Westminster Archives and Hackney Music Development Trust. We will also be offering programmes linked to Regimental and Corps Museums around the country and developing a range of downloadable learning resources.

For more information on changes to services and details on how you can access our resources on line and in your local area, please keep an eye on the website or sign up to our e-newsletter for regular updates. You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
