The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK's year-round centre of Remembrance; a spiritually uplifting place which honours the fallen, recognises service and sacrifice, and fosters pride in our country. It is a living and lasting memorial.

At the heart of the Remembrance Centre is a fascinating, interactive exhibition 'Landscapes of Life' providing a preview of the Arboretum and an introduction to the concept of Remembrance and why it is an important human need spanning thousands of years. With fully immersive audio visual displays, hands-on interactives, artistic interpretation and the opportunity for visitors to share their experiences, it's the perfect start to a visit. 

Alongside this are two temporary exhibition spaces, featuring a changing programme of exhibitions, galleries and installations. In the past this space has hosted exhibitions in partnership with 14-18Now, Manchester Art Gallery and ceramisist Clare Twomey amongst many other well know names. Please take a look at the website for upcoming features.
