Locations for kids by theme: World War 2

National Army Museum

Location: National Army Museum       Child: Free       Adult: Free

The mission of the National Army Museum is to gather, maintain and make known the story of the British Army and its role and impact in world history.  Learn about life as a Victorian soldier or World War evacuee through quizzes, games and hands-on activities in our interactive Action Zones.

The Museum will be closed from 30th April 2014 for a major redevelopment.


Royal Air Force Museum

Location: Royal Air Force Museum       Child: Free       Adult: Free

The Museum is situated on the site of the original London Aerodrome, used for the great Hendon Air Shows between the two World Wars. Five mammoth buildings contain over a hundred aircraft, artefacts, aviation memorabilia, fine art and photographs covering the history of aviation from early balloon flights to the latest jet fighters.


Churchills War rooms

Location: Churchills War rooms       Child: Free       Adult: £16.50

Deep beneath the bustle of London lie the original Cabinet War Rooms - today part of the Churchill War Rooms - which sheltered the people at the heart of Britain's wartime government during the Blitz.

In 1940, shortly after becoming Prime Minister, Churchill stood in the War Cabinet Room and declared: 'This is the room from which I will direct the war'. Today, you can step back in time to explore the secret headquarters where Churchill and his staff changed the course of history.

Find out the stories of the people who walked the maze of corridors as London was being bombed above them. See where Churchill and his War Cabinet met, sometimes late into the night, and look through the lens of history into the Map Room, where the books and charts have remained exactly where they were left in 1945.

In the Churchill Museum, explore the man behind the image as you discover more about the influences and pressures that shaped Churchill's life and work.


Imperial War Museum

Location: Imperial War Museum       Child: Free       Adult: Free

This summer explore our ground-breaking new First World War Galleries. 

IWM London tells the stories of those whose lives have been shaped by war from the First World War to the present day. Visit our galleries to delve deeper into the stories of both world wars, exploring their complex origins and discovering what life was like for those who experienced war first hand, from the trenches of the Western Front to a blitzed street in 1940. We also trace the Nazi persecution and murder of Jews in The Holocaust Exhibition, and look at extraordinary stories of bravery behind the Victoria Cross and George Cross in The Lord Ashcroft Gallery.
