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

Our vision is to inspire this and future generations to discover and understand how many of the most compelling narratives of human endeavour and experience have been, and continue to be, shaped by arms and armour.

By leaving a gift in your Will to the Royal Armouries, you can help us to conserve, present and interpret our collection, keeping it free for future generations to be inspired and excited as we invite them to reflect on the history it represents.

Such a gift would allow our education programme to continue to expand, reaching children from every background by providing a unique and unforgettable backdrop to enhance their learning. It would also help develop our programme of learning for all ages through engaging live performances and shows.

If you are interested in supporting the museum in this way or have any questions, we would love to hear from you. Please contact our development team by emailing or calling 0113 220 1837.

If you are considering leaving a specific item, or would like to your gift to benefit a specific area of our work, please contact us so we can ensure that your desires can be met.
