D-Day – The Last of the Liberators
We have transformed IWM London as part of the First World War Centenary. This is a view of our new atrium, which opened on 19 July 2014. Image by Foster + Partners
Our new atrium will display the most iconic and unusual of our objects, exploring aspects of war from the First World War through to the present day. Image by Foster + Partners.
As you travel up through the museum from floor to floor, the stories of conflict on the balconies will move chronologically through the Second World War to current conflicts such as Afghanistan. Image by Foster + Partners.
We have also opened new shops and a new café, opening directly onto Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park. Image by Foster + Partners. Find out more about Transforming IWM London
