The new Museum of Military Medicine

Plans for the new Museum of Military Medicine have recently been released.

As you can see from this video from the design agency Scott Brownrigg, the plans are for a bold, new building in the Cardiff Bay area to house the incredible collection of this integral cog in British Army history.

The museum is currently based in the Army Medical Services Museum in Keogh Barracks in Surrey. As well as the collection of the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC), it aldo tells the story of the Royal Army Veterinary Corps (RAVC), Royal Army Dental Corps (RADC) and Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC).

Moving to Cardiff and into such a striking building will hopefully open up the amazing stories it holds to a new, wider audience.

Good luck to them, and I can’t wait to visit!
