  • This has a fantastic record of the unfortunate events in Guernsey. Really interesting and informative. We have been here on several occasions and each time I see or read something different. When in G...  more »
  • Could have easily spent a whole day looking round this museum. There were some superb exhibits both in terms of artefacts from the war and records in print and photos.  more »
  • 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 »

  • An interesting diversion for us when the weather was poor one morning last week. It is well-curated but for the adult entrance fee of £6 I would perhaps have expected it to be better-maintained. Fair enough, though, I guess the footfall can't be that large. Watch out - this place is cash only.
  • Hard to find a parking space but inside the man is very helpful and kind, it looks like he runs it on his own which is crazy because I can’t keep my bedroom in shape for one day! A great day out for the family with a cafe as well.
  • An excellent museum with an extensive collection of German military items and lots of material on the experiences of the islanders from 1940 through to 1945. Ideal for anyone interested in military and social history and for us the 2 hours we spent there ( winter opening hours) was not enough. Will go back again.
  • Excellent museum but the old fella running it needs to learn some manners...he's clearly fed up of people arriving expecting to pay by credit/debit card - but there's no indication about this on leaflets etc so beware, you need to pay by cash... nearby airport has ATMs
  • Interesting little museum with very detailed exhibits
