A visit to this museum is a must; it tells the story of armed conflicts in which Great Britain and the Commonwealth have been involved since 1914. The collection of weaponry, military vehicles, objects and uniforms is remarkable. The museum is also home to a collection of paintings and photos from far and wide on the theme of war. However, the highlight of the museum is undoubtedly the impressive and evocative exhibition dedicated to the Holocaust.
