The main collection includes a few pieces of passing interest, a rather gaudy shamsher presented by Maharaja Ranjit Singh to General Hudson and a few medals. The reading rooms however contain the real treasure.

The National Army Museum is a charity and specialises in the pre WW1 period, consequently it preserves material related to the Sikh Wars and the ongoing relationship between the Sikhs in the British Army up to the Fist World War. The reading rooms, contain numerous accounts, letters, maps, and documents relating to the Anglo Sikh Wars, including the original battle maps, and letters written (by the British) from the line.

The photograph collection is unrivalled, and sorted by regiment. Reading room tickets must be acquired in advance.
