Learning for All

We never stop learning, which is why the Royal Armouries website is a great place to visit for young and old alike. You can discover more about the collection and the subject of arms and armour online.

We also offer a range of sessions for the adult general public who are interested in deepening their understanding of an area of the collections or the subject of an exhibition.

Longest-range gun ever built

In WW I Germany built the longest-range gun ever. Its 100kg projectile travelled 122km, and left the muzzle at 1500 metres per second and reached a height of around 40km. About 6 times faster and higher than an average transatlantic passenger jet.
