Take a private guided tour of IWM London’s new Second World War Galleries, which explore the human side of a conflict that affected millions of people around the world.

Discover the stories behind some of the 1,500 collection items on display, including the smallest boat at Dunkirk, a 25-pounder gun that was used in anti-aircraft warfare at El Alamein, a final letter from a Kamikaze pilot, and the first piece of wreckage from the USS Arizona to be displayed outside of the United States.

 Through the stories of real people from across the globe, you’ll be given an expert insight into the causes, course, and consequences of the Second World War.
