Let's see this highly acclaimed exhibit just before it closes!

«A moving, nuanced look at the anti-war movement across the decades… a subtle, dispassionate, and intellectually nuanced show, attractively designed throughout, which raises important philosophical questions.» — The Telegraph

"[A] history lesson that’s rich, inspiring and, most surprising of all, patriotic." — Timeout London

"[U]plifting, enlightening and informative." — Institute of Historical Research

Please meet at the gate outside the premises at 3:30pm (15:30), and we'll head into the museum promptly at 3:45pm (15:45). Afterwards we'll reconvene and grab some drinks/food and reflect on what we observed. If the weather's nice, we could sit outside on the lawn and maybe even enjoy a mini-picnic.

There will be some time to check out some of the other exhibits that are closing soon after. as well, such as:

Syria: A Conflict Explored iwm.org.uk/exhibitions/iwm-london/syria-a-conflict-explored

Edmund Clark: War of Terror iwm.org.uk/exhibitions/iwm-london/edmundclark

But the special exhibit we'll be seeing together is

«People Power: Fighting for Peace» iwm.org.uk/exhibitions/iwm-london/fighting-for-peace.

«Take a journey from the First World War to the present day, exploring how peace movements have influenced perceptions of war and conflict in this major exhibition.

From conscientious objectors to peace camps and modern day marches, Fighting for Peace tells the stories of passionate people over the past one hundred years and the struggles they have endured for the anti-war cause.

Over three hundred objects including paintings, literature, posters, placards, banners, badges and music reveal the breadth of creativity of anti-war protest movements, reflecting the cultural mood of each era.»

Since we'll be entering the museum together as a group, we will receive the group rates for the special exhibit:

Group Adult — £9.00
Group Child — £4.50
