About the Imperial War Museum

Based in an imposing former hospital, this museum museum tells the stories of people's experiences of modern war from WW1 to conflicts today.

Often has a major exhibition on to compliment the main displays which feature everything from classic armaments to modern UN vehicles.

A large collection of medals and the stories of the bravery that lead to them is in the upper floors.
