Very good exhibitions. Was impressed as I haven't been there in over ten years. Used to go as a child all the time. The holocaust exhibition was portrayed very well although you have to have a strong stomach to go through it. But it was very informative. I was just a little disappointed that they took always the 1940s house! That was the best part of the museum :(. Overall though great place for a day out.

Extremely good museum. Been here a few times and have never disappointed. Very well laid out and a truly immersive experience for those interested history. It is made all the more fascinating with the real life artifacts on display. Will definitely be back.

Loved it, free entry as well. The huge navy guns outside the museum were eye catching. Inside the museum, the Rolls Royce Spitfire engine, the German BMW motorcycle with a side car equipped with a machine gun, and the first world war simulated trench were among the many things caught my interests. The shelter during the bombing for pedestrians on the street and the cage for home were creative but also out of necessity. There's the RAF museum that I went many years ago. It had more second world war fighter and bomber planes on display. If this is your thing, I also recommend the Churchill War room which is a separate museum, not free entry though.

After an extensive renovation, the IWM has become one of the most modern and beautiful museums in London. There remains an excellent mix between traditional and multimedia exhibits and the great hall is particularly impressive. Most of the museum is free apart from certain exhibitions. The cafe also warrants a special mention as the food is varied and delicious catering for all tastes (including a small children's menu). Only downside is very limited parking nearby so public transport is highly recommended.

A brilliant museum!! Went here with my Dad, when I was young. At the time just a few of the highlights were the chance to explore the cockpit of a WW II. Lancaster Bomber (the ones with the glass nose); or a complete WW I. trench replica. One of the many great & adventurous museums London has to offer, and if you´re interested in military or history, you shouldn´t miss the chance to visit!
