Following the government’s announcement on 31 October all three of the Royal Armouries’ sites will be closed to visitors from Thursday 5 November to Wednesday 2 December 2020.

As you will appreciate we must take these steps to ensure the safety of you, our visitors, and of our staff and all the people that we work with.

So with regret we have suspended our temporary, modified, Covid-secure schools programme at the Museum in Leeds, and at Fort Nelson. If you have made a booking, we will be in touch shortly.

We will continue to populate our Learning Resources with rich, engaging digital content you can use to enhance your students’ learning. And because some children still require additional support at home, our Learning Resources retain the content developed in lockdown, which is packed with engaging, curriculum-based learning videos and downloadable activities for parents, guardians and carers.

Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to be notified about the latest developments. Or save this page in your bookmarks and check back later.
