When they are not on display, our collections are stored in a specially designed facility, located just outside London, to ensure they are cared for correctly.
If you would like to access material that is held in our stores, please contact us to arrange an appointment. Most of the collections are accessible with sufficient notice, but there are a few restrictions, usually due to the nature of the object or staff availability.
The National Army Museum supports an ambitious programme of loans. Through sharing our collections with other organisations we can make them available to new and diverse audiences around the world. Our Loans programme helps us tell the story of the British Army through our collection and further knowledge and scholarship about our objects.
We consider external requests for the loan of our collection items. These should come from registered and or accredited institutions, and must adhere to our Conditions of Loan.Loans Policy Conditions of Outward Loan
If you would like to borrow any items from the National Army Museum's Collection, please contact the Museum's Registrar. Enquirers must demonstrate that the objects they want to loan will form an essential part of their display.
