With less than a month to go until IWM London re-opens on 19 July we’re starting a weekly countdown with a series of films showcasing activity taking place behind the scenes and highlighting some of the objects you can expect to see when you visit.
Our first film features the return of our Second World War Spitfire plane.
With just under a month to go until we re-open on 19 July we’re busy installing our new galleries and displays including the upcoming exhibition IWM Contemporary: Mark Neville.
