    Super interesting to see how the Nazi's functioned within the bunker. Loved reading the story about how it was surrendered. Kids loved it, and maintained interest throughout. Worth a visit!  more »

    The Museum is made up of very interesting piece with armoured vehicles and landing barge. There is a beautiful presentation inside the bunker. Only downside is that there is no guided tour.

    Brilliantly preserved. Great view from the top of the coast. Full of information, well translated into English. Shame about lack of free parking as advertised, but 2Euros for 2 hours on the nearby coast road (1-2min walk) - plenty else to see and do nearby. Stone's throw from the ferry terminal.

    I'd never expected to see a German WWII bunker in such a good state of preservation. The view from the range finder floor is stunning on a good day and, in historical context, chilling. There's a good selection of items and photos to see inside with interpretative panels. Loses a star for having no free parking as advertised on their website (unless you have a motorbike) and no soap in the toilets.

    A bit on the pricey side compared to other museums here, but well worth it. The bunker is in great condition and there is lots and lots of weapons and other WWII material on display. In the yard you will find a landing boat two canons and two tanks + a tankjeep. The souvenir shops are hard to get out of😉

    The museum is covering the history of the bunker really good. Good background infos about the bunker and its role. Compared to lots of other museums i liked the size and the good coverage of a subject. Worth a visit!

    There is the museum but nothing else. The other landing beaches are more interesting.
