Not just about War
One of London's essential sights
Location: Lambeth Road, SE1 6HZ
Description: The 'Imperial War Museum' is unique in its coverage of conflicts, especially those involving Britain and the Commonwealth, from the First World War to the present day.
It seeks to provide for, and to encourage, the study and understanding of the history of modern war and 'war-time experience'. It is proud to be regarded as one of the essential sights of London.
The Museum spans a huge range of activities not only at its main London location but also at its four further branches: the Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms in Whitehall, the historic ship HMS Belfast, moored in the Pool of London, Imperial War Museum Duxford near Cambridge, and Imperial War Museum North in Trafford.
