Whether you are a REME veteran or did not know what REME stood for until today, we have resources and activities to help you learn something new.

Visit the Museum

The best way to learn more about REME history is a visit to the REME Museum. Our exciting, modern displays chart the story of the Corps from its formation in 1942 to the present day in rare artefacts, fascinating photographs and personal recollections. Why not Plan a Visit?

There's lots to learn across our eight modern, interactive galleries.
