The Imperial War Museum North is a war museum in Trafford, Greater Manchester, England. It was designed by world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind and constructed at a cost of £28 million by Sir Robert McAlpine with engineering by Arup. The building has a highly complex geometry with sloping floors and ceilings and few perpendicular surfaces, designed to induce disorientation reminiscent of that caused by war.

The museum features an exhibit called The Big Picture; once an hour, the lights in the main exhibition hall are lowered, photographs and quotations from scenes of war are projected onto all of the walls, and recordings of events echo around the hall. This exhibit completes the unnerving feeling the museum is designed to create.
Admission is free and the museum is open between 10.00am and 6.00pm daily. The Imperial War Museum North won the 2003 British Construction Industry Building Award
