The cost to enter the tunnel is £13 for adults, £12 for seniors and £8 for children. I would not recommend this for small children. It is cold, dark and could be frightening in places. Students studying modern history would find this very interesting and...More

Worth the short trip from St Peter Port. New management is improving the visitor experience. Vast complex, very atmospheric and quite different to a lot of the other bunker complexes in the Channel Islands. Good value. Cool if somewhat damp!

It is a massive series of underground tunnels built with slave labour. There are only a few artefacts to view, but the atmosphere in awesome.

I picked this attraction, and it delivered. It’s very damp, not full of stuff as other museums, but, it’s an eerie reminder that the Channel Islands where actually occupied for 5 years. The Occupation Museum above ground does show this but, there’s something about the...More

The Underground Military Hospital and Ammunition Store is the largest structural reminder of the German Occupation of the Channel Islands. The entrance charge is £4 for adults which enables you to walk along many of the huge tunnels and view mostly empty rooms which comprised,...More

This was my 3rd attempt to visit this place. I’d been told by people not to bother as it’s a grim reminder of the war. I chose to ignore the comments as I believe in making your own opinion. It was very cheap (£4). Dark,...More

Visited the underground hospital today. We had seen the Jersey hospital last year and thought the guernsey one would be the same. Unfortunately not. hard to find, when we arrived learnt it was under new management. They have great plans to improve it but it...More

We visited this place to experience the subterranean atmosphere and get an idea of what it was like to be taken to such a facility. First impressions; damp, dark and probably in line with the first level of Dante’s hell. We have been looking at...More

Now reopened after some refurbishment of displays. Under new management and open 6 days a week. Lots of items to see and over a mile of tunnels makes it the largest structure built by forced labour in the Channel Islands.
