Imperial War Museum London helps visitors understand the British wartime experience by documenting the country's roles in World Wars I and II. Originally established in 1917 to memorialize British sacrifice in World War I, the museum expanded to record an even greater sacrifice a little over two decades later. Throughout the complex, you can view documents such as official orders, letters, diaries, and memoirs, as well as artwork including paintings, photographs, and sculptures. Listen to some of the 33,000 oral-history recordings and view over 350 vehicles and aircraft on display. World War I gallery exhibits a recreated trench. If the weather's agreeable, eat in the cafe, which opens out onto the Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park. Our London trip planning site makes visiting Imperial War Museum London and other London attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

A really great museum with fantastic exhibits and information. Educational without glorifying war. The holocaust information was sobering, giving perspective on the changes in Germany post WW1. Similar for WW1 display very interactive and poignant Some rare military hardware on show Many war arenas are covered not just WW1 & 2
Was a great experience! Definitely will be back! The exhibits were informative and helpful, lots to look at. It's a full day, which we didn't expect but we pleasantly enjoyed it. The only set back is the cafe/bistro. Absolutely appalling the prices for the quality of food. About a 200% markup on everything. Cash not accepted either.
