London has plenty war museums. The National Army Museum is not so famous as the Imperial War Museum, and is a good way to discover specific aspects of the British army.

My experience, Explo description: 

The museum deals with the history of the British army, from the very first to the the most recent conflicts.

Have a look at the curious 3 Inch "Smith" gun, at the WW2 section.

The museum also hosts numerous temporary exhibitions.

My personal recommendations: 

I did really like the visit because it gave me the opportunity to discover unknown episodes of the British history, such as the Boer War, or the Falkland War.
