Imperial Silence

Imperial War Museum. In the front yard.

Imperial War Museum. In the front yard.

It’s imposing and full of light, but there’s something else that strikes you when you enter the Imperial War Museum. It’s the quiet. At least in comparison with other London museums filled with over-excited kids, loud parents and gobs of tourists. No, it does have popular cafeterias with visitors chatting over a latte. But there is a kind of reverence that seems to have settled over these walls. You just wonder, walk around…

And then you visit the third floor, the Holocaust exhibition.
