Imperial War Museum

Imperial War Museum, Lambeth, London
The original location of the Imperial War Museum was the Crystal Palace, located at the top of Sydenham Hill. The museum was founded there in 1917 to commemorate those who died during the First World War. When that building burnt down on November 30 1936 a new location had to be found, they settled on a building in Lambeth, London, England ( Lambeth Road, London, SE1 6HZ, United Kingdom ). The building was originally a psychiatric hospital called Bethlem Royal Hospital, located in St. George's Fields.

The museum features a collection of military vehicles, weapons, war memorabilia, a library, a photographic archive, and an art collection. Entrance is free, though there may be charges for special exhibitions, and its open daily 10.00am - 6.00pm.

The museum concentrates on conflicts of the 20th century and later.
