National Army Museum (while socially distancing)

Situated over four floors, the National Army Museum tells a huge range of stories from the Army's history. Tickets are free but you have to book ahead of time, you can do that here  Check the website before your visit to see what is open.

The Museum is open daily from Tuesday 7 July (10.30am-3.30pm), except on Mondays.

There is no parking on site – many of the parking bays are resident parking only but we managed to find visitor parking bays on Durham Place/Ormand Gate.

Social Distancing

There’s a quick bag check when you enter and were a few sanitiser stations dotted around. There’s also a one-way system in place. The number of visitors allowed in at any one time is limited which makes it very easy to social distance. The gift shop only accepts card payments.


Our Verdict

My sons Dad really enjoyed this one. My son on the other hand was really bored mainly due to the fact that the majority of the kids’ interactive stuff was closed (including the Playbase and the tanks that they can climb into) and the touchscreens weren’t enough to keep him invested so I spent most of the time trying to keep him entertained whist his Dad soaked up the information. I think when it fully reopens, he’ll enjoy it a lot more. For that reason, I’d say unless you have an army fanatic on your hands that its best to wait until its business as usual. The lunchrooms and cafĂ© were also closed. It was basically a ghost town inside so socially distancing was no problem at all.
