Our Permanent Collection

Main Exhibition Space

Our striking Main Exhibition Space features a timeline of the conflicts that Britain and the Commonwealth have been involved in since the First World War. Discover personal stories of those whose lives have been changed by war, and explore themes common to all conflict in six mini-exhibitions within the space – from the role of women to science and technology.
