IWM London welcomes visits from groups and schools. 

To facilitate the development of IWM’s ground-breaking new Second World War and The Holocaust Galleries, which will be opening in 2021, the Secret War and Family in Wartime galleries at IWM London have closed permanently. Please contact customer services if you have any questions.
