About this location

The Royal Engineers Museum and Library tell the story of the Corps of Royal Engineers and military engineering. It is a story about the Sappers and their courage, creativity and innovation. In peace and war the Corps has been everywhere and involved in everything. The Museum galleries display exquisite Chinese embroideries given to General Gordon, maps, drawings, letters and airgraphs, paintings and fine uniforms alongside Zulu shields from Rorke's Drift, tanks, torpedoes, bridges and chemical weapons. The Library founded in 1813 holds material as diverse as 1860s photographs of Canada, classic military histories and World War One unit war diaries. The entire collection of this museum is a Designated Collection of national importance.
