As the National Museum of Arms and Armour, Royal Armouries is Britain’s oldest public museum and traces its roots to the Tower of London.

Royal Armouries is home to the national collections of arms and armour, including artillery, and to the National Firearms Centre.

The collection is split across three UK sites – Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds; its ancestral home at the Tower of London; and Fort Nelson near Portsmouth. It is the only UK museum to have a permanent presence in the US at the Frazier History Museum in Louisville, Kentucky.
