  • If you stop to read everything you'd need a whole day here. There really is a lot of information and it's very interesting. Would have been 5 stars but I found it so darn cold in there that I couldn't...  more »

  • Brusque dismissal of my father-in-law's mobility issues. Only the fact that we wanted my father-in-law to see this place stopped us from leaving immediately. No patience or customer care. We felt most unwelcome so only stayed long enough to see bare minimum. Certainly wasn't going to spend time or money in the tea room.
  • Fantastic museum! An amazing collection that really immerses you in the spirit of the occupation from a surprisingly unbiased viewpoint. The pieces are incredibly varied and well presented, giving you an experience of aspects that you would never otherwise consider. Highly recommended for anyone interested in channel islands history or WW2 in general.
  • A very good museum. Tells an interesting story about the occupation of Guernsey during WWII
  • Best museum on the island outside of castle Corner by far. Would recommend.
  • Everything there was from the German Occupation of Guernsey. All up close and real. CafĂ© serves wonderful "Occupation " jam and marmalade with great pots of tea.
