What’s coming up at the IWM London

Date Posted: 11/04/2013

The IWM London reopens to the public on the 29th July with a bumper programme of exhibitions.

Art exhibition, Architecture of War will explore how modern war has influenced and impacted on the spaces people inhabit, by bringing together a selection of art from IWM’s collection.

Highlights include works by William Orpen, Ronald Searle, William Scott and Langlands and Bell.

The museum is also launching IWM Contemporary – a new programme of exhibitions and events by leading artists and photographers whose work is in response to war and conflict.

The first exhibition in the programme includes the London premier of Omer Fast's celebrated film, Five Thousand Feet is the Best.

Also opening on the 29th July, Horrible Histories®: Spies, based on the popular children’s book series written by Terry Deary.

The transformation of the IWM London

IWM London will fully reopen to the public during the summer of 2014, after a year of redevelopment.

Teachers should note that although the museum is partially open from 29th July, its new World War One galleries and atrium will remain closed, and there will be no large objects including aircraft, tanks and artillery on display.

IWM’s other London branches, HMS Belfast and Churchill War Rooms will remain open during this time.
