After a pleasant stay at my friend Antonia's country house on the outskirts of Madrid in Spain, I returned to England and came straight to Manchester, a city that I have fond memories of since the early 1990s. The Imperial Museum of the Northern War, it houses permanent exhibitions in the space of its main gallery on the first floor of the museum. They consist of a chronological display covering the 200-meter perimeter of the gallery and six thematic displays in silos within the space. You will be able to see (and even manipulate some) various items from various wars, such as Tanks, Fighter Jets, Cannons and various weapons. Come and see this excellent cultural space!
Powerfully emotive. Fascinating technical detail balanced by an appropriately reflective description of the tragic human cost. Anyone from a generation fortunate enough to have grown up in a time free from war should take this opportunity to learn the stories of those who provided our freedom to do so.
Dark and moody atmosphere. It's a fantastic place to bring 10yr olds and onwards. The staff were so helpful and lovely. Exhibitions were thought provoking. Enjoyed it and will read the guide book front too back. Just wonderful thank you
This is a comprehensive walk through modern western warfare. It is laid out in date format, which us great for those who learn chronologically. The displays are great and the didactics are quite informative. I'll definitely be visiting again. Like almost all British museums, entrance is free. However, parking is £5 for 4 hours.
Free to enter with the option of purchasing a guide book to help contribute to the running of the museum. A 'film' is played on the hour every hour detailing different experiences of war and they are well worth seeing. Each runs for approximately 10-15 min. Great displays.
