Imperial War Museum London
Featuring everything from full-size tanks to the personal letters of prisoners, this museum presents an informative journey through the wars of the 20th Century. Galleries take visitors through a tour of the First and Second World Wars, as well as conflicts including Vietnam and the Falklands. A highlight of the museum is the permanent Holocaust Exhibition. It's a rare glimpse into the reality of life during a very traumatic period. Other exhibitions regularly visit the museum for extended periods of time. The museum also enthralls the public with full-size reconstructions of an air-raid shelter and a front line trench. In short, a museum that doesn't fail to both impress and inform. General admission is free, but the museum may charge a fee for special exhibitions.
Great place. Lots of tanks, planes and weapons. Wonderful displays about Falkland Islands and Holocaust. Price is right. I went early Saturday morn and got right in. I'll visit again when I'm in London.
The IWM London is a wonderful museum illustrating both the triumphs and tragedy of war. There are several exhibits that will absolutely bring a tear to the eye. Very moving!!
The staff members are friendly, effecient and very professional. Also, there's a wonderful selection of books in the gift shop.
I have visited the IWM during my London vacations for the past two years and look forward to yet another visit in 2007.
