Visiting the Armouries

The Prince of Wales Armouries and the City of Edmonton Archives have put some adjustments in place for the health and safety of our staff and visitors. Please call in advance to make an appointment for your visit to the Archives. The appointment will have a specific time for you to enter the building to allow us time to pull the materials you want to view. Plan your visit accordingly.
