The Story of the British Army
This proved a transformative measure, redefining and fundamentally altering the Museum and its relationship with the public. The Event-conceived architectural intervention that now forms a Central Court not only opened up the building, improving orientation, circulation and the potential to display the collections dramatically: it also enabled for a new thematic structure with an introduction followed by a series of themes which explore the Army’s story by relating it directly to all our lives.
Drawing from the blueprint set out in the Masterplan, Event’s interpretive design responds to the Museum’s desire to tell the story of the British Army in insightful and dynamic ways and to stimulate active debate about its wider role in society. Spectacular displays combine with intimate encounters to paint a rich, coherent and comprehensive portrait of the British Army. The National Army Museum was opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in May 2017.
