On 6 January 2014 IWM London will close for six months. In July 2014, for the Centenary of the First World War, we will launch a transformed IWM London with ground-breaking new First World War Galleries and a newly configured atrium displaying our iconic large objects.
To mark the First World War Centenary IWM London will also launch Truth and Memory - the largest exhibition and first major retrospective of British First World War art for almost 100 years.
Our transformation is well under way; access around the museum is currently limited and on 6 January the museum will close until July 2014. Find out what Galleries are currently open at IWM by clicking here
