DISCOVER BRITAIN'S MILITARY HISTORY
Whether you want to visit a museum in person, look at art online, research family history, or find advice on how to look after items of military heritage, we are here to help. The Trust is linked with over 140 museums and collections of military history, all as varied and individual as the regiments they represent. They are a rich source of historical information and provide unique insights into the inspirational deeds of courage, bravery and good-humoured fortitude that have characterised the British Army though the centuries. These collections and their archives have something of interest for all, from Old Comrades to the adventurous young, and from the serious student of military history to the casual visitor.
AMOT is a sector specialist network; as the only national organisation representing and supporting regimental and corps museums throughout Britain, AMOT also encourages the public to engage with and help identify and preserve military heritage. AMOT provides advocacy, advice and funding.
AMOT is committed to supporting the ongoing development and innovation within the army museums sector. Our work has four main facets:
We support the sector to advocate for the importance and relevance of army museum collections and activity
We distribute and manage a programme of grants for project and training development (more information can be found here)
We work with partners to lever in funding to support discreet project work, for example, our Army Museums into the Future and Libor projects (links to these)
We deliver a programme of training and events to increase knowledge and understanding with the sector, working with the National Army Museums and developing regional network programmes across the country (for more information click here)
