Imperial War Museum
Learn about the history of war in the 20th century, with a particular emphasis on Britain and the Commonwealth. The museum's aim—to give a human face to the subject—ensures that exhibits rise far above a gruesome story of artillery and death. You'll see weapons, art and documentation from those who lived through both world wars, as well as strong audiovisual displays. Daily 10 am-6 pm. Closed 24-26 December. Free except for special exhibitions. Audio Guides Highlight Tour of main galleries £3.50 adults. Lambeth Road (Tube station: Lambeth North or Elephant and Castle), London SE1.
