Imperial War Museum, London: 59 reviews and 120 photos
I spent years putting off going to the Imperial War Museum. I had no interest in what I thought was a museum dedicated to "militaria". But one day I read an article about this place... and I went. It was a very moving experience. One particular exhibition - the permanent Holocaust exhibition, I was barely able to continue viewing... I could only see and read so much. Yes there are old tanks, guns, weapons and great collection of planes but there really is so much more.... (and I never expected to find a piece of the Berlin wall in the beautiful grounds!) There is a lovely (small) restaurant there too.
There are a lot of hands on, interactive displays geared towards children and a very realistic (I'm guessing of course - I wasn't actually there) reconstruction of a WW1 trench and a WWII Blitz experience.
Definitely well worth visiting.
