Imperial War Museum London

Notice of Closure to Summer 2014

IWM London is closed until July 2013.

This is to enable the museum to safely and securely deliver the most disruptive construction works for an ambitious project to transform IWM London.

During the period of temporary closure IWM’s four other branches – Churchill War Rooms and HMS Belfast in London, IWM Duxford and IWM North – will remain open.

In July 2013 IWM London will be partially re-opening with a major new family exhibition Horrible Histories®: Spies, an autumn programme of new art and photography displays including works that have never been on display before, as well as the permanent art galleries, The Lord Ashcroft Gallery: Extraordinary Heroes, The Holocaust Exhibition, Secret War, A Family in Wartime and the Explore History Centre. In summer 2014, after a year of continued transformation and development, the museum will fully re-open with the launch of brand new First World War Galleries to mark the 100 year anniversary of the start of the First World War, a new Atrium as well as new shops and a park-side café.
