The Military Intelligence Museum displays key elements of the history of British Military Intelligence from the Boer War forwards.

The central Collection in the Museum is the Intelligence Corps Collection, which includes artefacts and special exhibits about the history and activities of the Corps as well as two specific displays: one recording the Honours and Awards received by members of the Corps and the other 'In the Name of the Rose,' a memorial to Corps members who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their Sovereign and their country.

The second key Collection is the Medmenham Collection devoted to aerial photography and image analysis. This highlights the use of 3D imagery, initially in the first World War and then again with huge success in World War II and the Cold War.
