Royal Armouries Museum

Create an attractive destination

The museum has the potential to become one of the world’s most exciting museums through a compelling and relevant narrative on world and British history offered through the lens of arms and armour. 


Group ginger working with ARUP are helping to establish a long-term plan for the future of the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds with the aim of transforming the museum into a sustainable and forward-thinking institution that encourages exploration, fascination and pleasure.


The study identifies ways for the museum to become the focus for learning, study and research of arms and armour; to earn recognition as an internationally important destination which is attractive to diverse audiences. The preparation of a masterplan rationalises the development potential of the museum’s estate and assets to ensure the museum has a sustainable future which provides an environment for the encouragement of learning and appreciation of the collection in an exemplary modern museum environment.
