  • The museum itself is nice but the tapestries on the occupation are absolutely worthy of a visit and a moment of reflection!

  • Great attraction. Visited with family who were over on holiday. Parking near by but parked at the waterfront and enjoyed a walk around the harbour 
  • there's a lot to see, spread over a bigger area than is apparent - plenty of hands on exhibits for children to get involved with
