The Building for the Future project will see the radical transformation of the National Army Museum and deliver new opportunities for accessing the Museum and its Collection.
Our approach is based upon close work with our audiences, listening to and learning from them. We are responding to this by developing displays, activities and services that meet their needs and exceed their expectations. We want to provide lifelong learning opportunities to audiences of all ages, to place learning at the heart of what we do.
Our aspirations are high. We hold a national collection and we want to work with new partners across the UK to bring our Collection and expertise to more audiences than ever before. This transformation in the way we work is an exciting one and one that we believe ensures that the Museum will survive and thrive long in to the future.
The project is made up of four key areas:
- Visitor experience
Revolutionising the visitor experience within the Chelsea site.
- Caring for the Collection
Providing new learning opportunities through enhanced education and collection storage facilities.
- Learning and Outreach
Establishing an ongoing programme of outreach work.
- Changing the way we work
Changing the way we work to reach wider audiences and developing more sustainable working methods.
The Museum has worked closely with the local community in informing the development of the project. Find out more about the impact of the project on the local community.
