National Army Museum re-opens after three years
Have you heard about the National Army Museum’s incredible re-vamp? Following a £23.75 million project, one of Chelsea’s favourite cultural institutions recently re-opened on 30 March.
Existing fans can find everything they enjoyed from before, but there will be plenty of exciting new features for first-time visitors to discover too.
The modern new building is laid out over four floors with themed exhibition spaces – Soldier, Army, Battle, Society and Insight. There’s also a brand new café, study centre, exhibition space and shop to discover. And families coming to the museum will find Play Base, a colourful space where children aged up to seven years old can learn about army life while having fun.
Plus, have you seen the glowing reviews from critics? Their comments have included the following:
“[The] National Army Museum’s reinvention is a thought provoking triumph” – The Daily Telegraph
“The Duke of Wellington’s cloak, the skeleton of Napoleon’s horse, Lawrence of Arabia’s robes, the cloak worn by the man who carried the order to the front for the Charge of the Light Brigade, and a twisted piece of shrapnel from an encounter 11 years ago in Helmand province in Afghanistan: these are among the new displays at the National Army Museum in London, which reopens this week after a three-year, £23.75m redevelopment” – The Evening Standard
“Lawrence of Arabia’s desert robes will be on display when the National Army Museum re-opens its doors to the public at the end of the month following a £23.75 million revamp…they will be one of many fascinating and iconic items on display when the museum opens for the first time in three years” – The Daily Mail
