First World War Galleries

Kennington

100 years on from the Battle of the Somme, experience our ground-breaking First World War Galleries.

Discover the story of the war through the eyes of people in Britain and its empire, both on the home front and the fighting fronts. Gain an understanding of how the war started, why it continued, how the Allies won and its global impact. See over 1,300 objects drawn from IWM's First World War collections – the richest and most comprehensive in the world. Ranging from weapons, uniforms and equipment, to diaries and letters, keepsakes and trinkets, photographs, film and art. Each object on displays gives a voice to the people who created them, used them or cared for them, and reveals stories not only of destruction, suffering and loss, but also endurance and innovation, duty and devotion, comradeship and love.
