Transforming IWM London

On 19 July 2014 – to mark start of the Centenary of the First World War – a transformed IWM London re-opened with our ground-breaking new First World War Galleries and a dramatic new atrium displaying our iconic large objects and terraces featuring key stories from our collections.

Our research facilities remain open and our event spaces are available for daytime hire.
