Imperial War Museum North


A great free day out for all the family, IWM North brings to life stories of how war has shaped lives over the past century. A varied programme of events, activities and hands-on interactive displays makes our subject matter accessible to all ages.
We've got special family-friendly events every weekend and every day during school holidays! Visitors of all ages can get involved in family workshops, tours, games and activities.

Get hands on with history at our TimeStack object handling sessions and enjoy our changing storytelling sessions and performances involving fascinating characters.

Get creative in our Learning Studio (which also has a soft play area for younger visitors) and make a crafty souvenir to take home.

Visit our What's On calendar to see what is happening on the day of your visit.
