I visited the Imperial War Museum in London in 2009 and was pleased to have enough time to see the Manchester-based North version last week.
There was a special exhibition of pictures by Don McCullin, marking the 75th year of the acclaimed photographer.
Here's a few snaps of the museums artefacts to give a flavour of what is in store for visitors.
The Soviet T 34 - a very important tank
I used to read these a long time ago
Not many people made a mug out of Monty
Those were the days - when magazines
didn't airbrush their cover pics
Everything seems to be going up - I blame inflation
Can you see what it is yet? Or rather - which dictator it depicts
A guarantee of peace in Europe from 1919 onwards
It all sounded so promising, with a shilling and a return by Christmas to boot
The bell of The Lusitania, sunk in 1915
The Hawker Harrier - still a very impressive sight
