A Family In Wartime

This new exhibition tells the story of how ordinary people braved the challenges of life at home during the Second World War through the eyes of the Allpress family, who lived in Stockwell, London.

The Allpress family had to cope with rationing, evacuation, war work and events such as the London Blitz and VE Day, which shaped everyday life and the story of a nation.

Featuring a model house of the Allpress family home as well as photos and interviews A Family in Wartime brings this time of courage, duty and determination vividly to life.

Explore a recreation of an Anderson shelter, scan the airwaves for radio shows from the archives and discover more about life in wartime Britain through film, iconic posters and paintings from the collections in A Family in Wartime.
