Imperial War Memorial, London Reviews

  • Incredibly detailed. I wish I had more time time to see all the exhibits. The great war exhibition just opened and I couldn't help but drop my jaw. I had to take as many pictures as i could so I can absorb all the information later. It was a real highlight to see a real V1 and V2 rocket in the lobby. The stairs are positioned so you can view them from every angle. The Holocaust exhibition is extremely heart breaking. Not for those who aren't able to view objectionable content. Very emotional. Please take caution.

  • Absolutely amazing museum and the highlight of my own trip to London. Whether you like learning about history or not it is an amazing place. The collection is fantastic and everything is clearly labeled and explained. They manage to keep it very interesting and powerful. Would recommend going through all the exhibits but the world war 1 and holocaust exhibits are incredible, truly well put together. I spent around 5 hours here but I would say the average time would be around 3 hours. There are also some vendors in the area to grab a bite to eat before or after your visit! Amazing museum and will for sure be coming back.

  • This was much more detailed, thorough and larger than I expected. Had great WW1 Exhibits and the Holocaust section was profoundly interesting (and sad). Very accessible with lifts. We spent about 2 hours here and could have spent double that. Plan to stay a few hours at least. Free admission but you'd be crazy not to donate the 5 pounds.

  • The Imperial War Museum is definitely the best place in London for studying the First World War and onwards. On the one hand, it has a fabulous atmosphere as there's so much to see and learn about but at the same time it can be quite eerily dark and daunting - a suitable vibe given the sombre topic. It's also a great venue for events, with beautiful architecture and a great layout. Definitely worth a visit.

  • Its a good modern place. But I remember what it was like before when I was a child growing up and preferred that much more. The layout is still good, you can see they did spend some effort here. There is still a lot to see. The Holocaust is still haunting and well-done. There are lots of lifts and access to wheelchairs seems to be good.
