  • Nice place to know more about WWII history.
  • Very nice.
  • Has a vast collection of weapons, uniforms and objects from the landings of 1943. The trail is well laid out, understandable and detailed. Simulation of aerial bombardment is exciting. There are also many statues and reconstructions of life-size environments, scale models, collections of weapons, even heavy.

  • And sufficiently rich in history. A miniature version of military museums much more important, but overall well done. Exciting experience of the air-raid shelter.

  • Very nice Museum to visit if you want to expand your knowledge of the island in its history close ... a bunker with characteristic effects of strong vibrations and noises simulating World War II bombing
