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
From 2014 to 2018, across the world, nations, communities and individuals of all ages will come together to mark, commemorate and remember the lives of those who lived, fought and died in the First World War.
The First World War Centenary Programme is a vibrant global programme of cultural events, exhibitions and activities, and online resources that connect current and future generations with the lives, stories and impact of the First World War. The programme is presented by the First World War Centenary Partnership, a network of local, regional, national and international cultural and educational organisations, led by IWM.
