Having undergone a £23 million transformation, Chelsea’s National Army Museum has reopened its doors. In the new permanent thematic galleries – Soldier, Army, Battle, Society and Insight – over 2,500 objects are on display, two thirds of which are on public display for the first time. The 500m² temporary exhibition space opens with War Paint: Brushes with Conflict, displaying over 130 paintings and objects.
Completing the Museum is the Templer Study Centre, Learning Centre, brand new café, shop and Play Base, where children aged zero to eight can learn through play. Their new interactive galleries and family-focused events mean that there is plenty to do in the new National Army Museum.
Play Base is an immersive experience for 0-8 year olds, offering a variety of fun and engaging activities. Whether your child wants to take on the assault course, climb aboard a truck or prepare scoff in the cookhouse, Play Base lets every child shine.
