  • Brilliant museum and well run. Very informative and full of historical items great for old and young alike.  more »
  • set in the 7 or 8 rooms of a semi underground german WW2 bunker with many of the original doors, fixtures and fittings in place. every room has a cabinet crammed with relevant militaria.  more »
  • Great tour of the bunker and associated history. Relatively small (you'll probably see It all in under an hour) but reasonably priced and well located with nearby parking.  more »

  • What a stunning hidden gem. A lovingly operated museum that welcomes the visitor and recreates a feeling of the occupation of the island with first hand experienced from both sides. The attention to the museum equipment and layout is spot on creating a real feeling of life in the bunker whilst compiling a comprehensive experience of the war years. Many photos and little touches for serious history buffs like myself with huge detail provided in the displays. Seeing all the equipment and repair kits and necessary tools of war shows the size of what was achieved during a difficult period. Proprietor was a wonderfully friendly gentleman who put me completely at ease. So much to see in a relatively small museum but excellent value for money. Loved it.
  • A fantastic amount packed into a small place. Well worth a visit.
  • Excellent little museum crammed full of history. They even have a small selection of artifacts for sale too
  • A fantastic WW2 occupation museum which transports you back to the 1940s well worth a visit
  • A small but perfectly formed museum housing a remarkable range of artefacts considering the space available. It was a salutary experience to visit a bunker that's in something like original condition, as the hundreds of others I've visited have been stripped of everything leaving no impression of how they would have been. The guy on the ticket office was also very friendly and helpful. I first tried to visit about 5 years ago, but it was out of season by a week, and closed, so I was pleased to actually get in this time. If this is 10% of the owner's collection then I'd love to see the rest!
