The Imperial War Museum North4
I think the multimedia presentations are excellent. A fantastic way of showing the films. The length of the presentations are just right. The sound vibrating through the walls gives you a real sense of being part of the scene. The animals of war exhibition was very interesting. The restaurant there is also worth a mention. Excellent food at good prices, with a view too! Would recommend the museum and the restaurant.
The exhibits are thought-provoking and very interesting, a poignant reminder of the past, especially with the personal effects of 'ordinary' people caught up in wars over the years
The walk about the museum was rather spoilt, however by the over-use of multi-sensory media, with loud narratives played through loud-speakers and the whole museum being turned into a wall on which video footage was played. I would rather have had the opportunity to watch these films away from the rest of the exhibits as everyone in the room had no other option than to watch as all the lights were dimmed
