The museum, reading room and archives at the International Heritage Centre are available to everyone free of charge. 

Update, September 2021 

The reading room at the International Heritage Centre in London will be open from October for visitors who wish to use books, archives and periodicals from our collections. We are limiting the number of visitors due to the Covid pandemic and have introduced some Covid-secure guidance for visitors at this time. If you wish to arrange a visit to use our reading room, please email heritage@salvationarmy.org.uk.

Our remote enquiry service has also resumed, so we can now answer historical enquiries by email, phone and post.

We apologise that our museum remains closed for the time being due to ongoing collection management and planned refurbishment. In the meantime, you can visit our Virtual Heritage Centre.

If you would like to view items from our archive collection, please contact us in advance to make an appointment and tell us what you would like to see. You can use our catalogue to find details of items in our collections. 

If you are not able to visit in person, we can also answer enquiries by email, phone or post.
