This visit offers a chance to see and learn about the Imperial War Museum’s library collections, and the ideas behind the new ‘Explore History Centre’. There will also be time to visit the adjacent Research Room, and the refurbished library and archive stores.

The Explore History Centre is an informal area where visitors can find out more about the IWM Collections, accessing the main collections database, and begin their personal research quests. Online records now accessible through the Centre include art, documents, photographs, books, sound recordings, film, and objects. Many records have digitised images attached, which can be ordered. Sound recordings, books and documents can then be directly accessed in the Research Room
