Havering Museum launched Home Front Havering: Local Life in the First World War, an attraction marking the centenary of the conflict.
The exhibition tells the stories of local people who were involved in the war, through artefacts, letters and photographs donated by their descendants.
It was opened at the High Street site by Paul Weaver, from the 10th Essex Regiment Living History Group.
The exhibition, also running at Havering Libraries Local Studies in Romford Central Library, will be available until November 15.
It is part of the two-year project Home Front Havering, which has received more than £8,000 in funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
