IWM London will be closed from January to June 2013, as the first stages of a major transformation project begin.

Leading up to the 100 year anniversary of the start of World War One in 2014, new First World War Galleries will be created.

These new galleries form part of a significant project taking place over the next decade, which will see IWM London remodelled into a new museum that will transform its visitor experience.

Family exhibition marks re-opening

The museum will re-open in July 2013 with major new exhibition Horrible Histories®: Spies.

Based on the popular children’s book series by Terry Deary, those organising a group trip will be immersed into the world of World War Two spy-craft, including codes and ciphers, disguises, camouflage, forgeries and gadgets.

The spy theme will continue in Secret War, an ongoing IWM London exhibition exploring the clandestine world of espionage, covert operations and the work of Britain’s Special Forces.

Organising a group trip

Group travel organisers arranging a visit to IWM London should note that building works will continue through to summer 2014, when the new First World War Galleries, Central Hall and Large Object Gallery will be fully revealed.

Parties of ten plus qualify for discounted group rates on ticketed exhibitions.
