Britain at War Museum

The Second World War affected the lives of millions of people all over the world, advanced technology and changed political boundaries and ideas of human behaviour. But how did it really feel to be a British citizen during the Second World War?

Get the closest possible insight into what life was really like in WWII at The Britain at War Experience. Huddle in an Anderson shelter whilst the London Blitz is re-created with sights, sounds, artefacts, and even the dust and smoke of an air raid at its height.

Keep up to date with wartime news in the underground cinema or read it in the memorable news pages. Enter the BBC radio studio and tune into Rome, Washington, London and Berlin for the latest messages from Churchill, Chamberlain, Roosevelt, Ed Murrow, Hitler and Lord Haw Haw.

Look in at Rainbow Corner – a club to entertain the GI’s. See real wartime bombs, rare documents and photographs in the unique Bomb Disposal display…you can even hear a ticking bomb. Learn about the Land Army Girls and other “women at war” who fought their battles on the Home Front. Window shop along the little shops of Southwark and see prices in pounds, shillings and pence. See how people coped with food and clothing rationing. Share the excitement and anxiety of the evacuees as they wait to be transported to new homes. An exciting and educational adventure for all ages.
