Imperial War Museum

The Imperial War Museum was one of my favorite stops in London!
IMG_1564 It was an absolutely beautiful day, and though this building has a classic and wonderful facade, the inside was quite sobering.

Although it is frequented by thousands of tourists a year, it does a wonderful job of prohibiting war from slipping into an idealistic realm.

Instead, we are reminded of the tragedies of war so that in learning of the past, we avoid mistakes and create a better future.
