Filming at IWM
At IWM we handle a broad range of filming projects, from news pieces on our latest exhibitions and in depth interviews with our experts, to filming behind the scenes with our Collections and documentaries. To find out more information about what each branch in the IWM family has to offer crews and how to arrange filming please contact the relevant Press office.
Please note: IWM London is closed until July 2013 for our major redevelopment project to create new First World War Galleries. During this time, it is not possible to film in the galleries, but it may be possible to film outside the building. For more information, please contact the IWM London press office.
