Help us take the Military Intelligence Museum out ‘on the road’

Who are we?

The Military Intelligence Museum tells the story of British military intelligence from the Napoleonic era onwards.  We reveal the tactics, techniques and equipment used by the people who have carried out their vitally important tasks across the years, often in secret, with courage and determination, but always without fanfare.

We 'Share the Secrets' of the shadowy world of intelligence, security, espionage and other military intelligence disciplines, telling the stories that you will not see or hear in any other museum in the United Kingdom.

What is our aim?

We aim to increase public exposure and understanding of military intelligence by taking the museum out on the road with a new, mobile exhibition centred around a converted trailer and supporting vehicles that will allow us to set up an Intelligence Cell ‘in the field’. This will include military tents, camouflage nets and other associated equipment to add authenticity and enjoyment.  

Within the Int Cell we will showcase military intelligence activities and the people who do it whilst also giving visitors the chance to try their hands at a range of intelligence activities including analysing data to unearth a secret, discovering the truth and identifying deception, ferreting out a spy and much, much more.   


How your donation will help

Work to prepare the trailer has already begun but we need your help to take it to the next stage, kitting out the trailer for intelligence work, with things such as illuminated map boards, tentage, cam nets, interactive screens and various activity materials.

Your donation will help us wow crowds at public events, entertain and educate school groups, take our displays to community and social care settings and generally reach more people across more of the United Kingdom.

If you feel able to help, all donations will be most gratefully received and the names of all contributors will, with their permission, be recorded for all to see.   You will be part of our ‘Sharing the Secret’.
