  • 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.
  • Arrived today at 1550 to be told that last entry is at 1600 so I cannot let you in. We are only visiting Guernsey for the day and this was supposed to be the last thing we had left to see. We had walked all the way from the underground German hospital in the rain to here as it says in multiple places it shuts at 1700. DO NOT BE FOULED BY THERE CLAIMED OPENING HOURS!!!!!!!!! He also SLAMMED the door in our faces as we exited the entrance. It showed me the nasty side of Guernsey which is a shame when everyone else lovely! Run by lazy staff!!!!! Glad that £12 entry fee for us wasn't given to this place!
  • Excellent museum, lots of info and exhibits. Great tea and gache. Spent 3 hours there!
  • Compact, but lovingly presented.......very interesting 2 hours.
  • This museum has a comprehensive range of exhibits relating to the German occupation of Guernsey. It is well worth a visit. It is by far the best museum of its type I have ever seen and the cafe is very welcoming.
