    good museum

    We walked to the Imperial War Museum from our hotel at Waterloo. The World War 1 exhibit was very good. We don't typically enjoy museums, but this was a good one.

    Powerful and important reminder of the awful human consequences of warfare

    I had visited the IWM some 7 - 8 years ago, so was curious if much had changed in the intervening years. This time we took our children (11 & 13) and they both very much enjoyed the experience. It's...

Additional Information

Introduction

Spanning five separate locations, the Imperial War Museum takes a look back at the wars fought during the 20th century. Exhibits vary in size and poignancy, with everything from full-size tanks to personal letters from war prisoners. Originally opened in 1920, the history of the museum parallels the artifacts it now houses. The museum was expanded during World War II, later adding a permanent exhibition on the tragic events during the Holocaust.
