As a way to end the International Aspects of Defence Policy Conference, the Brazil Institute at King's College London would like to extend an invitation to all guests for a visit to London's Imperial War Museum.

The visit will take place on Saturday 14th November at 10.30am and will provide a guided tour of the museum. 

The Imperial War Museum, London (part of a group of five similar Museums across the UK) covers conflicts, especially those involving Britain and the Commonwealth, from the First World War to the present day. It seeks to provide for, and to encourage, the study and understanding of the history of modern war and 'wartime experience'. The London Museum has also recently received a £40 million makeover which will make this an excellent opportunity not to be missed. Some of the on-going exhibitions include: Lee Miller's "A Woman's War" which looks at the impact of WWII on women; Rosalind Nashashibi's film 'Electrical Gaza'; and Peter Kennard's "Unofficial War Artist" exhibition.

For those who would like to make their own way to the museum, we will meet at the main entrance at 10.15am. The museum is a short walk from Lambeth North Station. For those who would like accompanying, we will be meeting outside the Strand building of King's at 9.30am.
