Salford Quays & The Poppies
View the beautiful Poppy Wave at the Imperial War Museum North, Salford Quays!
Poppies: Wave is a sweeping arch of bright red poppy heads suspended on towering stalks.
The multi award winning IWM North brings the national collection of Imperial War Museums to northern audiences. Designed by world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind to represent a globe shattered by conflict, the iconic building, innovative and dynamic exhibitions and public events explore how war shapes lives and inspires and encourages debate.
IWM North is presenting Wave while its sister institution, IWM London, is presenting Weeping Window. At the end of the tour they will become part of the Imperial War Museums’ collection.
In 2018, in addition to the Poppy sculptures, IWM will present Making a New World, a season of innovative exhibitions, installations and immersive experiences at IWM North and IWM London which will explore how the First World War has shaped the society we live in today.
Spend the afternoon at leisure in Salford Quays… Manchester’s Waterside shopping destination Imperial War Museum North and The Lowry are vibrant and exciting examples of contemporary architecture, the contents as stunning as the setting and with something to appeal to the whole family.
