IWM London Exterior shot
Since 1917, IWM has been collecting objects and stories that give an insight into people’s experiences of war, preserving them for future generations.

At IWM London, we use these collections in our galleries, displays and events to tell the stories of those whose lives have been shaped by war and conflict from 1914 to the present day.

As a charity, we depend on supporters to help us care for and to display these exceptional collections, inspiring visitors of all ages to better understand why we go to war and how it impacts on our world today. Your support will help us to continue telling these stories.
