Once Upon A Wartime

Thrilling tales of loyalty, separation, excitement, survival and identity are brought to life in this major exhibition for all ages.

Discover the stories of War Horse, Carrie's War, The Machine Gunners, The Silver Sword and Little Soldier. Visit the exhibition to find out about the true events and experiences that inspired these children’s novels about war.

A tail fin from a German incendiary bomb, a First World War training horse, evacuee labels and aircraft recognition cards are just some of the objects from IWM’s collections that reveal the reality behind each of these children’s tales.

The exhibition also includes personal objects belonging to the authors, including the painting that inspired the writing of War Horse, on loan from author Michael Morpurgo.

On display for the first time, see objects straight from the set of Steven Spielberg’s War Horse film, including the jacket worn by Albert and pages from the film script.
