IWM (Imperial War Museum)

IWM London is one of the five Museums that make up IWM, a global authority on conflict and its impact on people’s lives. IWM London has been based in a South London park since 1936 and uncovers the causes, course and consequences of war through permanent exhibition galleries, special seasons and events. The new Second World War and Holocaust Galleries will open on 20th October 2021, just part of the ongoing transformation of the museum.
