Exhibitions

The Royal Armouries frequently offers temporary exhibitions to complement our collections as well as challenge many pre-conceived ideas. Overall the aim of these exhibitions is to inpire, educate and entertain.

Some of our exhibitions are large and occupy a distinct exhibition area; others may be smaller and form part of a current gallery or display.
