From 28 July 2016 artist-photographer Edmund Clark presents an exhibition exploring hidden experiences of state control, touching on issues of security, legality and ethics during the 'Global War on Terror'. Discover astonishing acts of bravery in The Lord Ashcroft Gallery: Extraordinary Heroes exhibition, delve into the world of espionage in Secret War and explore key moments of the Second World War in the award-winning Holocaust Exhibition.

Likes: Comprehensive exhibitions on wars that the British fault. Trench and Blitz exhibits are interesting, though the latter get busy. Don't miss the holocaust exhibition.

Very good museum one of the best in Europe I guess, But very British oriented (of course is in London) I think, shows the Brithish's point of view in the different wars they have participated. In here you won;t find an objective view of the conflict but the exhibitions are quite good.

Well worth a visit by both children and adults alike. Brings history to life with lots of hands-on activities.
