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 museum also houses our reference library and archive. We'd love you to visit us.

Connect with us on Twitter and Instagram.

Please note, both our Nottingham and our London sites are closed to visitors until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you back when it is safe to do so.
