Imperial War Museum

In some way or the other, the wars of the twentieth century have affected each and every one of us. The Imperial War Museum covering all aspects of life in wartime is here to tell all our stories. The Imperial War Museum is a museum in London which exhibits military vehicles, weapons and war memorabilia. The Imperial War Museum has a large collection of of oral recordings of interviews with people who were affected by war in the 20th Century. The Imperial War Museum has a vast and extensive library which is open to the public Monday to Saturday, a photographic archive, and an art collection of 20th century and later conflicts, especially those involving Britain, and the British Empire. The sound archive has been used for a series of radio programmes and books, called Forgotten Voices. The museum is partly funded by the government, but also depends on individual contributions and generates revenue through retailing, licensing income and other commercial activity.

Imperial War Museum is unique in the degree of access it offers to its reserve collections. Professional and private visitors are welcome to study 'behind the scenes' and the Museum deals with over 80,000 enquiries each year. Over 120 people work in the Collections Division, helping to acquire, catalog, conserve and correctly store or display the items. The Imperial War Museum is also a major national art gallery, a national records archive and a research center. Imperial War Museum is originally located inside the Imperial Institute (now Imperial College), the Imperial War Museum was moved temporarily to the Crystal Palace, placed atop Sydenham Hill. The Museum was founded there in 1917 to commemorate those who had died in World War I. In 1939, the Museum started collecting things relating to World War II, and then finally in 1953 it began its current policy of including memorabilia from all modern British conflicts. All in all the Imperial War Museum seeks to provide for, and to encourage, the study and understanding of the history of modern war and ‘war-time experience.
