The AMS Museum is one of 69 regimental and corps museums maintained by the Ministry of Defence. It is currently located at Keogh Barracks in Aldershot. Its collections consist of archives and object collections associated with the four constituent corps of the Army Medical Services and personal papers and objects donated by serving and retired members of the corps. The AMS Museum houses approximately 20,000 objects, while its archives include an important rare book collection on early medicine (currently housed at the Wellcome Library, London).
The Board of Trustees have sanctioned a new project for a brand new Museum of Military Medicine (MMM) in Cardiff Bay, Cardiff.
The project vision is to inspire learning about past developments in Military Medicine through shared experience, world-class research, artefact collections and archives, and through programming and public displays, for the sustainment of a healthy future for all our citizens.
In conjunction with Cardiff City Council, a site has been identified to relocate the Museum and preliminary designs have been drawn up by the project architect. Project funding is being sought from various sources including the MoD and HLF.
Greenwoods are acting as Project Managers, Quantity Surveyors, Project Advisors and providing Fund Raising services.
