I have been to the Imperial War Museum a number of times so I concentrated on the First World War Gallery. It was excellent with lots of information, interactive displays, mock-ups and atmosphere.
I will keep returning!

This has to be one of the best War Memorial Museums I have ever visited. Beautifully erected with different monuments outside of the premises. Inside it is full of information about various wars throughout history, relics, documentaries, audio/visual stimulation and more. It is just on the outskirt of town - easily accessible from Lambeth/Kennington side (or Golden Tours Blue Bus does stop here on their schedule, but can take longer due to traffic).

Very moving and disturbing at times but always an insightful eye opener.

You could easily spend a whole day in this museum but if you have time it's probably worth doing the first 3-4 levels in half a day and then coming back another day to do 4-5 (as it can be quite full on but the time you get to the Nazi dedicated section).

Highly recommend.

I have visited this exhibition previously but this time I attended from a professional point of view. The staff were extremely friendly and obliging, the History centre went above expectations. The exhibition itself is well worth a visit, it is emotional but extremely well put together

It is a ok place to visit. It doesn't have a lot to see. There is a boat displaced there was used during the Dunkirk rescue, impressive.

As an "Imperial" war museum I expected to see something from the days of Empire (i.e. 1800s). But this museum has nothing from before WW1. Which is a shame because it was such an interesting time for military history: Crimean War, Indian Mutiny, and many "little wars" in India, Afghanistan, Africa & China. Compared to the Musee de L'armee in Paris and Canadian War Museum in Ottawa I gotta say this museum was a disappointment.
