Abstract :
The Imperial War Museum in London was founded in 1917 to collect and house records of the Great War. It opened in 1920 in Crystal Palace, Sydenham, moving in 1924 to South Kensington. It was eventually installed in Bethlem Hospital, Lambeth, in 1936, and its collections were doubled by the Second World War. Between 1989 and 1992, with more recent wars added to its remit, it was refurbished as a populist and vividly-accessible museum, suitable for a family outing. Essay addresses general museum issues, while examining the particular history and development of the Imperial War Museum, through peace as well as war. ;
