Imperial War Museum – A taste of British History
Fancy learning about some British History?
Marking the 100 year commemoration the Imperial War Museum has gathered together over 200 objects, films, sound recordings, photographs, artworks and letters. The displays include items from IWM’s unrivalled national collections and from personal public donated items, many of which have never been on public display before.
Discover the story of the First World War through the lives of those who experienced it both on the front line and at home.
See how the war started, why it continued, how the Allies won and its impact on people’s lives across the globe. Walk through a recreated trench with a Sopwith Camel plane swooping low overhead as a Mark IV Tank looms above you. Explore the war at sea and campaigns in the Middle East, Africa, Gallipoli and the Western Front.
Find out what life was like at home during the First World War in Britain and its former Empire. Discover the reasons why men signed up to fight and how Britain came under enemy air attacks. Uncover the contributions women made in factories, hospitals and elsewhere to keep the troops fed and fighting.
