About this location

IWM London tells the stories of those whose lives have been shaped by war through the depth, breadth and impact of our Galleries, displays and events. Our new First World War Galleries tell the story of the war - how it started, why it continued and its global impact - through the lives of those who experienced it. Our dramatic new atrium - featuring iconic objects including a Harrier jet, Spitfire plane and V2 rocket - reveals how people's lives have been affected by war and conflict from the First World War to the present day. Explore stories and key moments from the Second World War in A Family in Wartime and The Holocaust. Discover stories of bravery in The Lord Ashcroft Gallery: Extraordinary Heroes and delve into the world of espionage in Secret War. IWM is a member of the First World War Centenary Partnership, a network of organisations committed to the delivery of the First World War Centenary Programme: a global programme of events and activities inspiring young and old to remember the impact of the First World War on people and society today.
