On display at the museum

A lot of our artefacts are on display at the museum in order to tell the tale of the country’s armed forces. Every single one a unique specimen with its own story to tell.

In addition, the NMM has a large warehouse, which has lots more artefacts of our collection: large military equipment, but also miles of books, paintings, prints and photos, apparel and firearms. The warehouse is where the collection is administered and conserved. Our collection staff make sure the collection is also available for remote digital consultation.
