Imperial War Museum to mark WW1 from July

Imperial War Museum to mark WW1 from July
3 Dec 2013

From next July, visitors to the Imperial War Museum in London will be able to explore new galleries to mark the centenary of the First World War, which began in 1914 and ended in 1918. 

Exhibits showcasing weapons and uniforms, diaries, letters, souvenirs, photographs, art and film - many of which have never been seen before - will sit alongside interactive digital displays and immersive spaces.

These will include a recreated trench, complete with a soundscape designed to give the 21st century tourist a sense of what it was like in the heat of battle, and the 'Supply Line' - an interactive table more than 4m-long, allowing visitors to get an idea of the enormous scale of production required to keep the troops fed and fighting.

Voices from IWM's Sound Archive will tackle some of the most difficult aspects and questions surrounding the war.

It's like to be a hugely moving experience for all who visit next year.ADNFCR-408-ID-801668125-ADNFCR
