SofNAM is run for and by people who choose to demonstrate their support for the purpose and work of the National Army Museum.

Our Friends are vital to the Museum's continued success. Their enthusiasm, dedication and generosity have been invaluable, enabling the Museum to keep the history of the British Army ever relevant. With their help the Museum has been able to conserve and expand the Collection, to ensure the legacy of the British Army is continuing for more people to enjoy, explore and learn from.

Friends act as the Museum's greatest ambassadors to the rest of the world. They work tirelessly to endorse and give voice to the work we do, and are key in helping us to raise much-needed funds and generate more support. It is this support that will be invaluable to us as we move forward with our ambitious development plan.

From the Chairman

"For anyone interested in our nation's army, in viewing its uniforms and equipment and in understanding its history, the National Army Museum is the most wonderful resource.

All the more so for its very successful refurbishment. The Society of Friends of the National Army Museum is wholly committed to supporting the Museum both in the interest we take and where possible financially. Over the years we have made a significant contribution to the continued wellbeing of the Museum and have enjoyed all that it has had to offer."

Why join?

There has never been a more exciting time to be involved with the National Army Museum as a Friend. The Museum has completed its ambitious development programme, which has transformed its galleries. Further developments will be made and so we need your help to increase awareness and appreciation of the National Army Museum and help us raise vital funds to help preserve and develop the Museum's Collection.
