Imperial War Memorial, London Reviews

  • Very interesting war museum with impressive collection from German WW2 rockets V-1 and V-2 to famous fighter Spitfire and Soviet famous medium tank T34/85 captured from Egypt by Israel and later donated to the Museum. First floor dedicated to WW1 is very detailed but I am disappointed with WW2 and wars after. In front of the beautiful building are battleship cannons as shown on the pictures. There is also very detailed representation of Holocaust which is not for everybody (although such horrors are to be presented not to be repeated). Restaurant is nice and building is renovated and modern.

  • Pretty good, displays and info short and sweet to keep your attention. Didn't get bored once and the 3 hours I was there went really quickly. The Holocaust exhibition was very well done, and the eye witness accounts of ordinary people made it captivating. However terrible as it may be it would have been better if you also heard personal accounts from the ordinary Germans themselves, and their opinions of the whole episode. But if you go through that whole exhibition without feeling any kind of emotion, you have not heart. But I think the whole thing was designed to be incredibly informative, but make you feel terrible at the same time.

  • One of my favourite places in London! Huge benefit of not being anyway near as crowded as the British Museum and NHM. Fascinating exhibits and you leave with the knowledge of so many stories of individuals in wartime. I'm sure to many the Holocaust exhibit is both harrowing and insightful and a must see if you're in the area. Obviously not recommended for young ones, although the rest of the museum is fine for all ages! Especially the WW1 section on the ground floor- fun, informative and interactive. Great way to spend a day.

  • As a museum professional myself, I was very impressed. We need to come back to London and when we do, this will be our first stop. Interesting materials for all ages and political affiliations. The exhibitions are beautifully crafted and the museum's approach to accessibility has me brainstorming some ideas for my own. Well done! It also doesn't hurt that this is one of the few museums in London that seems to have temperature control.

  • First time visiting this museum. I'm not too big into history, but the multimedia exhibits and eye-catching displays kept my attention for the couple hours spent here. Very well done. It's also free (donation recommended) which is nice as well. Worth a stop for anyone, and for those truly interested in WW1, WW2, or other aspects of British history, you will love it!
