Established while the First World War was still being fought people have entrusted IWM with their stories of war in the knowledge that we will continue to share these stories with future generations. At IWM North explore the conflicts that Britain and the Commonwealth have been involved in since the First World War to the current day through a timeline of objects that have borne witness to historic events.

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.
