The Britain at War Experience takes visitors into a 1940s world of rationing, evacuation and land girls, where visitors can listen to broadcasts made by Winston Churchill, Chamberlain, Roosevelt, Hitler and Lord Haw Haw or take refuge from the London Blitz in an Anderson shelter or a crowded underground air raid shelter equipped with bunks, canteen and a miniature library. In an evocative mock-up of a bombed-out London street the remains of a cinema, a pub and homes smoulder, air raid sirens wail and the bombing continues overhead.
