Whether your trip is for business or pleasure, all but very young children are likely to have a positive experience. I visited once with a friend, once with my husband and once with my 16 year old grandson. Each time, I left with a different understanding of what the War Rooms means to people of all ages.
It brings to life the circumstances of a time in history, which cannot be conveyed by reading or watching a movie. As you move through the tunnels, and observe the rooms, exactly as they were at the time London was experiencing the Blitz, you can truly imagine the lives of the people who spent months, even years, underground.
The narrative, which is available by a personal, handheld device, is excellent and includes exerpts from communications and speeches of the time. The rooms, with picture "time-lines" are both interesting and educational. These are particularly meaningful to people who lived through that time, but also a fascinating glimpse of the past, for those who have only heard the stories.
Thank you Imperial War Museum for maintaining this link to history - it is the crown jewel in your five different museums of war history, in and around London.
