Exhibitions

Explore the Royal Armouries exhibitions here.

These exhibitions complement our collections as well as challenge many pre-conceived ideas. Overall their aim is to 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.
