London Hit List #15 The Imperial War Museum

I absolutely love the Imperial War Museum. The sheer extent of their collection is astonishing – I have spent hours there and still haven’t managed to see everything. Every time I go I am moved by some object or detail that I never noticed before. And for those of you with bad memories of school history – don’t think that it has anything to do with history being boring! They also include interactive experiences where you get to walk through a simulation of a WWI trench and of a WWII air raid. They successfully make visitors engaged in the material and contemplate the devastating effects of war. Outside of the museum is a piece of the Berlin Wall, with graffiti of a sort of screaming face and the words ‘change your life’ which I always find particularly poignant.
