IWM London, located on Lambeth Road, explores how the history of modern conflict affects us all, from the front line to the home front. Exhibits range from objects of war to photographs and personal letters; they include film and sound recordings and some of the twentieth century's best-known paintings. Many of the world’s leading experts on all aspects of modern conflict work at IWM London.
IWM London is transforming – we are creating brand new, ground-breaking First World War Galleries alongside building a new central atrium space with large object displays and new shops and cafes.
IWM London will temporarily close from 6 January – July 2014, when a transformed IWM London will open to the public, ready for the First World War centenary commemorations.
