Description:
IWM is a family of five museums - see addresses above.

IWM is unique in its coverage of conflicts, especially those involving Britain and the Commonwealth, from the First World War to the present day. We seek to provide for, and to encourage, the study and understanding of the history of modern war and 'wartime experience'. 

On 19 July 2014, for the Centenary of the First World War, a transformed IWM London will reopen with ground-breaking new First World War Galleries and a newly configured atrium displaying our iconic large objects. To mark the First World War Centenary we'll also be opening Truth and Memory the largest exhibition of British First World War art for almost 100 years. To find out more visit the website link above.

Specialisms:
IWMs collections cover all aspects of 20th and 21st century conflict involving Britain, the Commonwealth and other former empire countries.

Created to record the toil and sacrifice of every individual affected by war, the collections include a wide range of material, from film and oral history to works of art, large objects, and personal letters and diaries.
