Imperial War Museum London

Imperial War Museums is the world’s leading museum of war and conflict.

Founded while the First World War was still raging, it gives voice to the extraordinary experiences of ordinary people forced to live their lives in a world torn apart by conflict.
Displayed across six floors, the museum’s vast collections encompass a wealth of objects – from uniforms to photographs, vehicles to films, weapons to works of art. Each one has a story to tell – stories about people and stories about the wider impact of war on the world we live in – all of them filled with the power to move, inspire and transform.
From the moment you step into the world-famous atrium to the countless discoveries awaiting you in the award-winning galleries, this is a place to experience the continuing influence of war on the world – an experience that is as compelling and thought-provoking as it is unforgettable.
