Your support

Royal Armouries is the UK’s national museum of arms and armour. We hold in trust for the nation one of the most significant and most comprehensive collections ever assembled – a treasure of international importance which belongs to all of us.

We want to inspire generations to discover and understand how arms and armour have shaped the most compelling narratives of human endeavour and experience.

COVID-19 Update

Royal Armouries is a charity. As well as government funding, we rely on the income we receive from ticket purchases, retail sales and purchases in our cafes and restaurants for our museums and major events to continue bringing history to life.

Our work as guardian of the national collection of arms and armour continues, even without these streams of income, therefore we will be more reliant on charitable donations and philanthropic funding for the foreseeable future. If you would like to support us please make a donation.

Coming soon – We are still planning to launch our membership scheme when the museum re-opens to the public. Register your interest  to be the first to hear about the launch and exclusive offers for the first few members.
