Imperial War Museums


Churchill War Rooms

History was made in Churchill War Rooms - an underground bunker that allowed Britain's leaders to plot the allied route to victory during the Second World War. Walk the labyrinth of rooms and corridors that stretch below Westminster that sheltered Winston Churchill and his war cabinet from the German bombing raids, and explore the Churchill museum to learn the story of his life and legacy.

Help tell the stories of lives changed by war and conflict.

Our five branches are home to unforgettable collections that document extraordinary times and the people that lived them. 

For more than 100 years - since being founded in 1917 to record the events still taking place during the Great War - we have been dedicated to telling stories that matter to audiences from across the world.

We’re recruiting for Front of House volunteers at all of our branches.

As a Discover Volunteer you will be the warm and welcoming face of the museum helping our visitors feel special and valued. You will be able to make recommendations based on every visitor’s personal interest and provide information to make sure that everyone gets the very most out of a visit.
