The venue is closed temporarily while a major redevelopment takes place.
IWM London closed in January 2013 as part of a major transformation project, due for completion in summer 2014. The venue partially reopened on 29 July 2013 to host a trio of temporary exhibitions but closed again on 6 January 2014 so the final work can be completed.
The reopening in July 2014 coincides with the Centenary of the First World War, when the museum will offer a host of new attractions, including First World War Galleries, a redesigned atrium with large object displays and a café that will open directly onto Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park.
To mark the 100th anniversary, IWM London will also launch Truth and Memory - the largest ever retrospective of British First World War art. Several existing galleries will also reopen: A Family in Wartime; Secret War, revealing the clandestine world of espionage, covert operations and the work of Britain’s Special Forces; Extraordinary Heroes, containing the world’s largest collection of Victoria Crosses; Second World War Portraits; and the Holocaust Exhibition.
Please note IWM London is completely closed from 6 January 2014 until July. IWM's other London Branches, HMS Belfast and Churchill War Rooms are open as normal during this time.
