It was my first time but my boyfriend has been many times before and was like my own private tour guide. Lots of interesting displays which make you feel sad that the war happened.

Great museum with plenty of exhibits telling the story of the German Occupation. You will need between 30 minutes to an hour to enjoy fully! Free parking near by, and bus service from St Helier!

Ok, so it’s a bunker, compact inside, solidly built with no scope to “knock through & extend” BUT it’s crammed with fascinating exhibits & information. Given the owner is paying rent for the bunker & the sheer volume & quality of the exhibits, the entry...More
