  • This museum is a testament to the passion of the person who has built and developed it. The museum is situated very near the airport so very easy to get to by bus as well as car. The amount of detail ...  more »
  • Not just weapons but a personal account of the inhabitants of the island during the occupation, lots of diaries and personal effects, not very disabled friendly, stairs etc 
  • This museum is well set out and takes you back to Second World War nazi occupation of Guernsey.Very interesting if a little harrowing. Brilliant exhibits.
