Imperial War Museum

The Imperial War Museum has five branches, three of which are in London. However, what is usually referred to as the Imperial War Museum is its building in Lambeth, known as Imperial War Museum London, although HMS Belfast and the Cabinet War Rooms are both also  part of the same museum group.

 

The Imperial War Museum London opened in 1920, hard on the heels of the First World War. Sir Alfred Mond, whose idea the museum was, addressed the King at its opening, saying he “hoped to make the museum so complete that everyone who took part in the war, however obscurely, would find therein an example or illustration of the sacrifice he or she made”. It has collected the real experiences of participants in wars ever since, and excels at bringing the real experience of war home to its visitors.

 

The museum holds documents, including letters and diaries from both high-ranking and ordinary participants in wars. It holds the work of many of the war artists, and it had over 3,000 works of art as early as 1920. It holds one of the oldest film and video collections in the world, as well as a photographic archive, an exhibition of firearms, a collection of printed books, a sound archive, and a department of holocaust and genocide history. In all, it represents one of the most impressive collections of war-related items in the world.

 

The nearest tube stations are Lambeth North, which is on the Bakerloo Line, and Waterloo, which also has a mainline rail station as well. You can also walk from Southwark tube station, or Elephant and Castle (which, again, has mainline rail services as well). You can get any of the following buses: 1, 3, 12, 45, 53, 59, 63, 68, 100, 159, 168, 171, 172, 176, 188, 344, 360, 453, and the C10. If you decide to drive then there is metered parking on Lambeth Road. If you take a taxi, tell the driver to take you to the Brook Drive entrance, just off Kennington Rd. Elephant and Castle station is not step-free, and not as accessible as Waterloo station.

 

There are many activities for children, as well as a large and ever-changing range of temporary exhibitions. To find out what is currently on, check the Imperial War Museum London website. The permanent galleries include: Explore History which allows visitors to get up close and personal with some of the documents and objects in the collection, the First World War and Second World War Galleries, the Holocaust Exhibition, the Crimes Against Humanity film, the Art Galleries, and Monty: Master Of The Battlefield.

 

The Imperial War Museum is both an important and an interesting museum, in that it has recorded, in as much detail as possible, some of what humanity has put itself through in the last hundred years. It has exhibitions for children and adults, and has many unique exhibits. Even if military history is not a particular interest, you may well find that the information about what people lived through is affecting and informative.
