The Imperial War Museum (IWM) London explores people's experiences of modern war and conflict, from the First World War to the present day.

Founded while the First World War was still raging, the Imperial War Museum gives voice to the extraordinary experiences of ordinary people forced to live their lives in a world torn apart by conflict.

From the moment you step into the iconic atrium, to the countless discoveries awaiting you in the award-winning galleries, IWM London examines the continuing influence of war on our world and hosts a programme of temporary exhibitions.

Hear extraordinary true stories of ordinary people’s experiences of conflict across the museum’s six floors.
