Explore the impact of war on people’s lives from the First World War to the present. IWM North is home to a diverse collection of artefacts from a Russian tank to a tin of powdered egg; from a make do and mend toy dog to a section of the World Trade Center.

Schools, FE and HE colleges and groups, including adult, military and overseas groups, can book a self-led visit. To enhance their visit further, a learning session or tour can also be added.

Learning Sessions use original artefacts, documents, photographs, and posters from our collections.

All schools, colleges and groups must book in advance. We are currently taking bookings until the end of December 2015. Bookings for 2016 will open in September.

Entry to the museum is free. Please allow at least 2-3 hours for your visit.
