IWM London is undergoing a major building redevelopment, which will see the museum being transformed to mark the centenary of the First World War.

Access around the museum is limited and some galleries are closed but there is still plenty to see, including major new family exhibition Horrible Histories®: Spies; a new programme of contemporary art and photography, IWM Contemporary; and a rehang of its art collection, Architecture of War. Many permanent galleries are also open.
