The Imperial War Museum really tells a story, and makes you feel like you experienced the things described. I especially enjoyed the exhibit on special agents. The Holocaust exhibit was well done but disturbed me a bit.

We had friends who came to stay with us for the weekend and we took them to the Imperial War Museum for a days outing. We were not disappointed. From the minute to enter the museum there is plenty to see and always something of interest for each individual. We enjoyed different aspects and this was a good talking point on the way home. well worth the effort of getting there. Tube is best!!! Elephant & Castle and then not a long walk at all.
