D-Day 70th Anniversary

Land Warfare

From the awesome artillery barrages of the First World War, through the giant tank battles of the Second World War, to the high-speed conflict of modern-day conflicts, Land Warfare charts how technological advances have changed the face of war.

Within Land Warfare, The Forgotten War exhibition highlights the political, military and the personal aspects of the Second World War in the Far East, the Pacific and in particular, Burma between 1941 and 1945.

Land Warfare is also home to The Royal Anglian Regiment Museum, which covers the history of the East and Royal Anglian Regiments since the amalgamations of the former County Regiments from 1958–1960.

Please note that during the winter period from 27 October 2013 until 14 March 2014, the Land Warfare exhibition will be open daily from noon. During the winter period the rest of the museum is open as usual from 10am until 4pm.
