Education

It’s time to get your pupils out of the classroom for a unique and memorable learning experience at the Royal Armouries.

Tailored to meet the demands of the new history curriculum, our sessions will enhance the study of key periods and chronology.

We have designed our sessions to provide a more interactive and hands-on experience for pupils, allowing history to come life in an exciting and meaningful way.

Sessions will take place in our dedicated education centres and in the museum galleries amongst the collection pieces.

We look forward to welcoming you and your students.

Six Eiffel Towers

During the siege of Sebastopol the British and French armies fired 10,000 tonnes of iron shot, 510,000 round shot, 236,000 howitzer shells and 350,000 mortar shells. That’s a total of about 43,000 tonnes of iron: the equivalent of six Eiffel Towers!
