First World War GalleriesVisitors will discover the story of the First World War when IWM London re-opens on 19th July 2014 with new permanent First World War Galleries where visitors can discover the story of the war, how it started, why it continued, how it was won and its global impact. The exhibition, staged to mark the start of the Centenary of the First World War, looks at the lives of those who experienced it on the front line and the home front and includes a recreated trench with a Sopwith Camel fighter plane swooping low overhead and a Mark V tank looming above. Visitors are immersed in trench live through periscopes, a dug-out, soundscape and projection showing what daily life was like for the troops just behind the front line on the Western Front.
