A few weeks ago, our friend came to visit us in London as part of his two months post-bar trip around Europe. Reed had an intense itinerary for Europe, hitting up at least 30 cities in 14 countries over the span of 8 weeks. Equally, he had a relatively ambitious agenda for London -- two long walking tours and several museums, and of course catching up with his expat friends over dinner, drinks (thanks for the fantastic Belgium beers and French wines!), and long conversations well into the night.
To put the two wars into historical and chronological context, the lower floor has a great exhibition clustered by geographical regions and historical periods to explain the series of events during both wars. The Trench Experience and Blitz Experience were also interesting depicting life in the trenches and the underground shelters during WWI and WWII, respectively. For background on the Blitz, read Keenan's post from September commemorating the 70th anniversary of The Blitz on London.
