The Imperial War Museum in London was created in 1917 to collect and display material relating to World War I. In 1939 the Museum started adding artefacts from the Second World War and eventually it began its current policy of including memorabilia from all modern British conflicts.
Inside you will find military vehicles, weapons, war memorabilia, an extensive library open to the public Monday to Saturday, a photographic archive, and an art collection of 20th century and later conflicts, especially those involving Britain, and the British Empire.
There are constantly changing exhibitions usually art based and for families there are changing events and activites to participate in. There is a café that serves hot and cold food and offer kids a special menu.
To get there from the Americana; go to Baker Street and take the Bakerloo Line southbound to Lambeth North, it is a short walk from there and is signposted.
