Come along on Saturday 23rd August for a visit to the newly refurbished Imperial War Museum!
About the museum
The museum reopens on the 19th July after a £25m refurbishment, which includes new WW1 galleries telling the story of the war. The reopening coincides with the 100 year anniversary of the outbreak of WW1 on 28th July.
The museum has occupied the former Bethlem Royal Hospital site since 1936. It holds over 11 million items relating to wars fought in by Britain and the commonwealth over the last 100 years. The museum also has seperate exhibitions on the holocaust, a family in war, the secret war (about spies & codebreaking) and paintings of war.
There is a lot to see in the museum, so expect to spend at least two hours looking around. We will divide into small groups when you arrive, to go round the museum together.
Entry is free!
Afterwards we will head to a local pub for a drink.
If you can't see us outside the station, please call.
Look out for the group sign -
Hope to see you there!
