The Big Picture Show
Using surround sound, projected digital moving images and photographs, the Big Picture Show brings to life people’s experiences of war.
Recently upgraded to the latest HD technology, the Big Picture Show immerses you in the heart of the action, creating a complete sensory experience which is totally involving and often very moving.
Seven shows are projected daily on the 27-foot-high walls of our Main Exhibition Space, each focusing on a different aspect of war.
