Attraction Information

Introduce your kids to the most important moments in history at Imperial War Museum London. Learn about the global impact of conflict from the First World War and Second World War to today, and discover the fascinating ways in which war has transformed the world we live in. 

Discover extraordinary stories of bravery in the world’s largest collection of Victoria Crosses with the free kids' stamper trail, and check out all the temporary exhibitions, events and family-friendly educational activities. It’s going to be one great educational day out!
