Discover IWM London
IWM London (previously known as Imperial War Museum) tells the stories of those whose lives have been shaped by war through the depth, breadth and impact of their galleries, displays and events.
With both large-scale hardware (including the two gargantuan naval guns before the entrance) and exhibitions on the social effects of war, the Museum now covers all conflicts in which British or Commonwealth forces had been involved since 1914 to present day. The museum underwent a major internal redesign and refurbishment and reopened in 2014 in time for the First World War Centenary commemorations.
Visitors will be able to explore what life was like at home during the Second World War in A Family in Wartime, discover how war changed lives in the award-winning First World War Galleries, or see work by some of Britain’s most significant 20th Century and contemporary artists at IWM Contemporary.
The historical IWM London museum displays both permanent and temporary collections on wide-ranging topics and themes from war art to modern-day combat.
