Imperial War Museum

After numerous requests about posting some photos where we are not damaging our livers we decided to have a quiet Saturday night and make a visit to the Imperial War Museum.

I had been planning to go here for ages but just didn't get around to it. It was definitly worth the wait. I was finally able to see in person all the machines of war that you have seen in the movies and on documentaries. Some of the most notable were the Jagdpanther German tank killer, the US Sherman tank, the British Matilda Tank, the T34 Russian Tank, The German 88 flak gun, The German V1 and V2 rockets as well as a replica Little Boy atomic bomb. There was also a Spitfire, Mustang and Messerschmitt Me 109 and a British Bomber. Outside the main entrance of the museum are mounted two massive 15" naval guns from former Royal Navy warships.

There was also a Holocaust exhibit showing the true horrors and brutality of what occured, its not for the faint hearted and Melissa only lasted 2 minutes before heading back outside.
