International Heritage Centre

The International Heritage Centre tells the story of The Salvation Army from its origins in the 1860s to the present, both in the UK and internationally.

The Heritage Centre comprises two museums, one in London and one in Nottingham, at the birthplace of William Booth. Our London site also houses our reference library and archive.

We apologise that our museums in Nottingham and London remain closed for the time being due to ongoing collections management and planned refurbishment. In the meantime, you can visit our Virtual Heritage Centre.

Our reference library and archive in London are now open to researchers by appointment. For more information and to make an appointment, please contact us.

Connect with us on Twitter and Instagram.
