The multi-award winning IWM North in Manchester, part of Imperial War Museums, reveals how war shapes lives, through powerful exhibitions and activities for all ages.

Walk through a timeline of history from the First World War to the present day at IWM North.
Explore a vast collection of over 2,000 objects, each one with the power to
move, surprise, inspire and change your perspective – from the First World War
field gun that fired the opening British round on the Western Front, to the
twisted rust-ridden steelwork retrieved from the rubble of the World Trade
Center in New York.
