Waterloo Remodelled

Dear Forum Members,

I've had several questions about when the Waterloo diorama will be on display.  For those who would like to buy tickets for the special lectures and private tours at the UK's National Army Museum (NAM) in London between 20-23 October, please go to the following link:

The NAM is also open for normal visitors.  The NAM's opening times are 10am-5.30pm and the diorama will be on display from Wednesday to Saturday. During this time anyone can purchase a ticket to view the exhibition and tour the whole of the museum.

This year, the exhibition will focus on Hougoumont, La Haie Sainte, Papelotte, Plancenoit and La Belle Alliance with about 20,000 figures on display.  Next year will focus on the French cavalry charges onto the Allied squares.  A series of annual exhibitions will follow joining up the whole battle to about the size of a tennis court.

This is a global effort with contributions from UK, Europe, USA, Canada and Australia and will be a fitting tribute to one of the great events in history.  


  1. Fantastic news. Such a fine effort by all involved, inspired and lead by your good self. This is a magnificent contribution to historical knowledge and an inspiration that will be around for generations to come, sparking renewed interest.
    For myself, I get great joy from viewing the images from afar, whether or not I get to see it in person one day.
    Regards, James

  2. Thanks so much James! Do please pass the word.
