The Royal Engineers Museum (REM) Collection has been developed by the Corps of Royal Engineers over the last two hundred years and now forms one of the most important military collections in the UK


Visit Kent’s largest military museum to discover the story of the Royal Engineers and how they have helped the British Army live, move and fight for over 300 years.

With highlights including 25 Victoria Crosses, Wellington’s map of Waterloo, Chard’s weapons from the Zulu War, an amazing collection of bridge laying tanks, Chinese silks, the world’s first guided torpedo, Indian battle axes, a huge piece of the Berlin Wall, Zulu shields, a Harrier Jump Jet and an deadly V2 rocket, it is no surprise that the Museum’s collection has been designated as being of historical and international importance.
