The Museum tells the story of the Corps of Royal Engineers. It is a story of courage, innovation, skill and endurance
Through their many galleries follow the evolution of the Sapper. From military architects and specialists in siegecraft, to the Army's innovators on everything from diving to surveying, flying to photography and transport to combat engineering.
Alongside their military exploits, the displays also illustrate the huge contribution of Royal Engineers to civil infrastructure of nations around the world. Did you know the Royal Engineers designed the Albert Hall?
