Discover the story of the war through the eyes of the British people and the 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.
This famous museum has numerous themed galleries and permanent exhibitions such as First World War Galleries, Secret War, Witness to War and curiosities of War.

LTT Group leaders have particularly recommended visiting the re-construction of family rooms, giving an impression of living conditions during World War II. Explore reconstructions of rooms as they would have been in the 1940s and see how the war affected life at home. Find out how radios emerged and connected people in Britain with those on the fighting front and discover the different wartime roles – both male and female – held by members of the Allpress Family.
