Yes. it is an exciting building with excellent facilities and superb views. However, the Museum must surely be judged on its content and it has to be said that this is seriously lacking. The exhibits are almost all small items of equipment, uniform, old photographs and bits of bric-a-brac such as can be seen in most towns in the country. More nostalgic than educational.There are only 4 large items on display. One of these is a Harrier jet suspended overhead and difficult to take in. Another is a Trabant car. Surely this is stretching things a bit. Oh yes, there is the odd mine here and there.The presentation of the film shows is a good idea but the sound quality is poor and the film I saw - why war - was utterly boring and juvenile.The whole exhibition area is almost in semi-darkness giving the feel of visiting an aquarium.The name, "Imperial War Museum" conjures up some kind of resemblance to London and Duxford and in that sense it is misleading..Redeeming feature - it's free.
