Attraction Information

National Army Museum is a place where both you and the kids can spend hours without getting bored. Explore the themed rooms and discover the history of the British Army. But hey, don’t just look, get involved, too! Kids love the interactive exhibits, especially dressing up in the iconic red uniform of the guardsmen.

If coming up-close with real uniforms and weapons wasn’t enough to get the little ones excited, there are lots more activities to enjoy. Little soldiers can have a go at marching, driving a tank, creative workshops and more. National Army Museum truly offers a great modern experience for the whole family.

Visiting with kids under 8? Unleash your brave little ones in Play Base - there they’ll be able to take on a soft play assault course, hop onto a truck and prepare food for the whole squad. The Play Base is a paid extra but it’s worth it!
