Specialty Museum Museum
Opened to the public in 1946 and subsequently restored, Jersey War Tunnels - German Underground Hospital encompasses an underground network of tunnels, fortifications, and military installations built by the Nazis in the 1940s. Intended to serve as part of the Nazi defense of the island, part of this particular set of fortifications were set aside to become an emergency hospital. In 2001, a permanent exhibit was unveiled and serves to illustrate the daily life of Jersey’s citizens before, during, and after the occupation.

  • Amazing place, so much to see and learn. Lovely coffee shop and souvenirs. Well worth a visit.
  • Fantastic tour and insight into life under occupation, the stories of the islanders and how everything was dealt with still important today. Very little to occupy children though, unless they are history fiends your going to be touring at a run to get it over with..
