Imperial War Museum london

Originally opened in 1920 to collect and display artifacts relating to World War I, the Imperial War Museum now covers many conflicts involving Britain and the Commonwealth that have taken place since then.

With a huge display of medals, firearms, artillery and uniforms, the Museum has two further sites in London – HMS Belfast, the Churchill Museum and the Cabinet War Rooms.

The Cabinet War Rooms are, for many, the highlight of any visit as these are the actual rooms where Winston Churchill led the British effort in World War II. The map room has been left with almost every original artifact, Churchill’s private room, where he would sleep if it were too dangerous to return to Downing Street, and the transatlantic telephone room where Churchill and the American President could conduct secure, strategic discussions, are all open to view along with many other rooms.
