"FIREPOWER"




The Royal Artillery Museum, based at the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich, South East London, has now closed and the museum will vacate the site by the end of 2016.

Plans for a new purpose-built Salisbury Plain Heritage Centre, close to the Royal Regiment's home at Larkhill on Salisbury Plain, have been unveiled. The new Heritage Centre is planned to be open to the public by the Spring of 2019 and will include 'Firepower' the Royal Artillery Museum.

For the duration of the transition period the majority of the Royal Artillery collection will be stored at a site owned by the Science Museum Group in Wiltshire. The Collection will be managed by a professional team employed by Royal Artillery Museums Ltd but will not be open to the public.
