IWM is a family of five museums and historic sites covering war and conflict from the First World War to the present day. Our museum sites include IWM London, IWM Duxford in Cambridgeshire and IWM North in Manchester. In addition we offer two historic experiences in London: Churchill War Rooms in Whitehall and the Royal Navy ship HMS Belfast which is permanently moored on the Thames.

IWM offers a range of filming and photography locations for productions of all sizes. Our portfolio includes; exhibition spaces, hangars, military structures, authentic archives, redbrick and modern buildings… and so much more! Some of IWM’s recent television and film credits include; Dunkirk, The Darkest Hour, Ironbark, The Crown (seasons 1-3) and a number of other upcoming feature films and television programmes.

IWM has a vast and unique collection, covering all aspects of conflicts in which British, Commonwealth or former Empire countries have been involved since the start of the twentieth century. Our collection spans; more than 11 million photographs, a constantly growing film and sound archive, documentaries and unedited combat film, through to official newsreels and amateur films. IWM has a team of experienced film curators who offer assistance to commercial researchers and has recently upgraded its IWM Film website designed for the needs of commercial users, with digitised films from the collection available to view online.
