Regimental and Corps Museum networks

The Regimental and Corps Museums meet regularly in regional networks throughout the UK.

These networks serve as forums for museum representatives to share advice relating to the sector and develop collaborative projects. Membership is open to all army museums and collections. The National Army Museum provides support through an advisory service, bespoke training sessions and by assisting with network projects.
