  • Visitor Information

The Salvation Army is a worldwide Christian church and registered charity. Founded by William Booth in East London in 1865, The Salvation Army now works in 126 countries. In the United Kingdom, The Salvation Army is one of the largest providers of social services.

The Salvation Army International Heritage Centre is the repository for the official records of the organisation’s International and Territorial Headquarters. The collections reflect the broad range and geographical scope of The Salvation Army’s work throughout its 150-year history, including records relating to work in Europe, South Asia, Africa and the Americas, social services, and the personal papers of Salvation Army officers.

The museum provides an overview of the history of The Salvation Army, divided into six themes.

- A People’s Army: An introduction to The Salvation Army and the people who have made a significant contribution to its work

- A Persecuted Army: Stories of opposition to the work of the Army, from its earliest days to the present

- A Joyful Army: The story of the instruments, music, composers and musicians that have made the Army so distinctive

- An Army fighting for Social Justice: An exploration of the Army’s commitment to working with the socially disadvantaged

- A Responsive Army: The Salvation Army’s role in helping the public during times of conflict and disaster

- A Global Army: The story of how a mission spread all over the world, and still grows today
