We really enjoyed our visit here, really well set out and big screen films shown against the walls whilst you are walking round, would definitely visit again.

I enjoyed our visit to the Imperial War Museum as it was an excellent experience for the whole family. We learned so much and afterwards we had a snack in the cafe. Even if your kids don’t like the museum there is something for everybody...More

I have been into this museum a number of times and although admission is free they try and get you to buy a £5 guidebook as you enter. The reception didn't mention the separate exhibition you have to pay for (£8 per person) on Wyndham...More

Very modern war museum! Educational and moving films are shown every couple of hours on the internal walls of the museum. Just take a seat and watch! Brilliant idea! Some of the exhibition areas (rather than rooms) are very quirky! One area was full of...More

First impressions were very positive. The building is a very impressive piece of architecture. I just stood and looked at it for a while. Just right for the location. We were lucky enough to see the Wyndham Lewis art exhibition which I wholeheartedly recommend. This...More
