Imperial War Museum London

Established in the former Bethlem Royal Hospital since 1936, IWM London is devoted to British and Commonwealth involvement in all military operations since August 1914, including a Large with an extensive collection of tanks, planes and submarines. The museum also offers special events and workshops during school holidays.

IWM London – IWM’s flagship branch – tells the stories of those whose lives have been shaped by war through the depth, breadth and impact of our galleries, displays and events.

Visit our award-winning First World War galleries featuring over 1,300 objects from IWM’s collections, explore what life was like at home during the Second World War in A Family in Wartime; delve into the world of espionage in Secret War; visit our award-winning Holocaust Exhibition; discover stories of bravery in The Lord Ashcroft Gallery: Extraordinary Heroes; see work by some of Britain’s most significant 20th Century artists in our art galleries or take in our latest major temporary exhibitions. Our family learning sessions and events encourage debate and challenge people’s perceptions of war.
