Records of the learning and education activities of the National Army Museum

Scope and Content

Records of outreach activities at the NAM including lectures and talks and learning resources.

Administrative / Biographical History

The National Army Museum was founded by Royal Charter in April 1960, and one of the objects of foundation was for the 'dissemination of information and knowledge bearing on the history and tradition of Our Army'. Learning and outreach activities were not part of the Museum's regular functions until it moved to its new premises in Chelsea in 1971, and today there is an active education programme for both children and adults delivered by the Museum's staff and volunteers.
