  • This is an outstanding museum that features the history of the British Army from about the 1600s to current times. Comprehensive displays from a lock of Napoleon's hair, to Lawrence of Arabia, to the ...  more »
  • I loved this museum, I found it so interesting and there was plenty to see. There was something on every aspect of army life, from how it affects the soldier and their family through to the major wars...  more »
  • 3 little boys absolutely loved it. Their interactive exhibits truly were (especially the guns and the tank) and held their attention - which is really quite something! As an adult with no knowledge of...  more »

  • We took a group of adults with autism and learning disabilities. We found the staff were very supportive, also very accommodating with our group. The group enjoyed their experience. The building is filled with light and many fascinating displays. A great day out.
  • We came here for the Special Forces : In the Shadows exhibition, which was great. Informative and well laid-out. We didn't have a great deal of time to see anything else, but the wider museum looked interesting and well-resourced. There's a great-looking cafe on the first floor; I wish we'd had more time here.
  • This is one of the most under-rated museums in London. It provides a fascinating insight into the British army, from when it began way back when, up until today. It has recently gone through a renovation and so it is really modern and smart. There are a number of interactive games which make it a great place to bring kids. It's in a lovely area of London which is worth walking around anyway. Also, there's a great cafe which provides proper hot meals and snacks.
  • Great mid size museum. Took my family and had loads for the kids to try out and explore. Some of the content is a bit strong for young minds, however with a little guidance there are many important lessons here too. Would definitely visit again!
  • Interesting, interactive and kids seem to love the different games they have throughout the Museum; however, that is exactly my problem with it; it doesn't feel like an Army Museum at all, instead it is more of a fancy and beautiful playground for kids. It is a small museum so you might want to spend a couple of hours here and combine it with a visit to the amazing Chelsea Physic Gardens just a few minutes away or the National Trust's Carlyle's House My other disappointment was with the tour (or lack of it). I booked a 'Security and the Army' themed tour and received a phone call on the day saying it was cancelled due to the lead voluntary falling ill - now this is completely acceptable; however, in the message they also said they they have the general tour of the museum also at 2:00pm and that if I wished to go to this one that it would be fine and there is no need to book it so I made sure to get there on time. I waited until 2:15pm and although there were a few people waiting in the point where they told us to wait, no one came to say it was delayed or cancelled so we just wandered around on our own.
