We have transformed IWM London as part of the First World War Centenary. This is a view of our new atrium, which opened on 19 July 2014. Image by Foster + Partners
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
Teachers are advised to carry out a preliminary visit in advance of their school trip in order to conduct their own risk assessment. Responsibility for pupils on school visits remains with the teachers at all times.
Everyday hazards such as slipping, tripping or falling on stairs, trapping fingers in doors and cuts and bruises are inherent in all environments. The following site specific factors should be considered in relation to the individual needs of each group member.
Supervising adults should ensure that their pupils understand how they are expected to behave. If the behaviour of anyone in your group adversely affects the safety or enjoyment of other visitors or staff, or causes damage to exhibits, this person may be asked to leave. Please brief your students about appropriate behaviour and have contingency measures in place in case anyone is asked to leave the building.
Galleries and exhibitions are on a number of different floors. Sensible footwear is recommended.
IWM is a charity, and we depend on supporters like you to help us care for and display our exceptional Collections. Please consider making a donation today.
