The Imperial War Museum opened a new display centre, known as IWM North, in Manchester in July 2002. The new location is an offshoot of the main museum in London, rather than the aviation collection at Duxford, and portrays war in the 20th from a variety of angles. There are only five major objects in the museum – the main aviation exhibit is an AV-8A Harrier jump-jet. Elsewhere can be found a Russian T-34 tank, a Tabant car, a fire pump and a field gun. Six display areas host a range of smaller objects grouped by themes. The aluminium clad building also houses a viewing platform at 29m with spectacular views across the Manchester Ship Canal to Manchester city centre.
On the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal, on Trafford Wharf Road, Trafford Park, Manchester. Signposted from the M60 and the end of the M602.
Open seven days a week, 10.00 am until 5.00 pm. Last admission 4.30 pm. Closed 24-26 December.
Restaurant, cafe and shop are open during Museum hours. The Museum has full disabled access.
