Disliked most of it. Very over-rated. Not much there. Extremely disappointed. Lot of space but not much in it.
We went to the IWMN today and its a good museum. Especially if your a fan of history. However, I feel that compared to the other IWM its quite dry. Plus, you can't spend a lot of time there otherwise you can get easily bored. However, its really informative about the most famous wars from 1914- present day. The best... More
I went to the IWM on a Friday with a close friend and it was undoubtedly a good time to go with plenty of space in the car park, no pressure in the cafeteria and plenty of room to move around. One thing worth saying at the outset is that the staff were all incredibly obliging, well briefed and charming,... More
We went when there was an exhibition of medical aid throughout history and found it absolutely fascinating. The movie played on all the walls was very atmospheric.The collections were very accessible and informative and we had a very enjoyable lunch in the cafe. Definitely recommended.
what a fantastic Museum, it was everything and more, a nice little brake from all the christmas shopping we thoroughly Recommend this for people of all ages, its interesting and informative we will come back next time we are in manchester,

I like the fact that they don't "glamorize" war, but just give the facts and make it very "human"... More
A very nice building which captivates you on sight with a good collection of war items. Has a very nice art section and I was lucky to have the show present. Not bad if you really need to see war collections, weapons, a nuclear bomb and some vehicles and a plane.
A Museum worth visiting, especially if you cannot make the London one. Divide into sections, this Museum has some excellent exhibits and accompanying narratives give you all the information you need. There are also regular short films projected onto the walls of the inner museum and the accompanying audio adds to the atmosphere of warfare. Entrance is free, but there... More
This museum is a bit mixed up. It suffers from an identity crisis. The building is very interesting if you are an architecture student, but is rather unsuited to exhibits. As a result of the internal layout of the building, the various items on display look like sculpture. The few items of war machinery look like modern art at the... More
