Geschichte

The Imperial War Museum is a multi-branch national museum founded in 1917 to record the story of the Great War and the contributions made by the peoples of the Empire to it. The Museum and its governing body, the Board of Trustees, were formally established by Act of Parliament in 1920, when the Museum opened in the Crystal Palace. From 1924 to 1935 the Museum was housed in two small galleries adjoining the Imperial Institute. In 1936 it was reopened in the central portion of the former Bethlem Royal Hospital in Lambeth Road, Southwark where it remains.
