IWM London is closed until July 2013 for our major redevelopment project to create new First World War Galleries. Find out more at Transforming IWM London.
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 will partially reopen in July 2013 with new exhibitions including Horrible Histories®: Spies and Architecture of War: Art and the impact of war on places. Additionally, a number of exhibitions and galleries will be returning, including A Family in Wartime, the Lord Ashcroft Gallery: Extraordinary Heroes, and the Secret War and Holocaust exhibitions. IWM London will continue to hold regular public events and informal learning sessions from July 2013.
