Overhauling the Imperial War Museum

In Museum [Insider], Museums, new content on November 5, 2010 at 9:09 am

There are plans afoot to change the way visitors interact with the collection at the Imperial War Museum, London.

The IWM are currently in a master planning process with Foster + Partners, who are providing the museum with ideas about how to redevelop the public galleries at the Lambeth Road site. The aim is to reopen the First World War galleries (which were last udpated in the early 90s) in time for the national commemoration of the start of the conflict in 2014. They’d then work on the Second World War and other galleries over the following years.

There’s a piece about the plans on Museum [Insider].
