The Royal Armouries Museum

[tabs type=”vertical”]

[tab title=”Little Vikings Says…”]Home to the national collection of arms and armour, the Royal Armouries is a treasure trove that holds over 8500 objects from across the world. This is no dusty museum though – everything is brought to life through hands-on exhibits, gallery talks, demonstrations and much more.

The Royal Armouries a brilliant place to visit with kids. The museum has gone the extra mile to make sure that even the youngest visitor will get something out of it. Try to catch a tournament if you can, and don’t miss the Jester’s Yard play area (small charge) if you’re visiting with younger children. Slightly older kids can see if they’re a hot shot in the crossbow shooting range.

Good to knowThere are frequent holiday activities that are well worth checking out – check out the Armouries’ website for details.
