Imperial War Museums (IWM) has branches at five locations in England, three of which are in London. Founded as the Imperial War Museum in 1917, and its focus is on recording civil and military war efforts and sacrifice of all conflicts in which British or Commonwealth forces have been involved since 1914.

The museum’s collections include archives of personal and official documents, audiovisual material, and oral history, an extensive library, an art collection, and examples of military equipment and technology.
