At Imperial War Museums, we aim to provide the widest possible access to our outstanding collection, be that printed material, documents, sound, film, photographs or works of art. You can search our holdings through Collections Search before you arrive, to make sure you get the most from your planned visit.
Should you wish to visit us in order to consult in more depth one or more items from the collection, we offer the following services.
Activator Volunteer Service
Following the closure of Explore History a new volunteer based information service will launch in the atrium at IWM London on 2 September. Activator Volunteers will be on hand to assist visitors with general enquiries and advise on navigation of the IWM website in order to make research room appointments, trace family history, and offer donations to the museum.
Please note that Activator Volunteer availability may vary.
