A small, privately run museum which sets out, in all its horrors, what life was like under the Germans. There are some interesting posters (the Germans were always threatening retribution and punishment, they never bothered with persuasion!) and artefacts.

An amazing collection to read, listen to and digest. So informative. A fantastic collection from history and love the personal touches of information of everyday life of the islanders plus all the big news of the island. Really worth a visit.

Fascinating and extensive collection that really tells the story of the occupation. Was amazed to see everything from dentistry tools to a fire engine - there's a surprise round every corner. In fact there's almost too much to see - you could easily spend 2-3...More

A good selection of artifacts from the 2nd world war laid out so as to give a sence of the feeling at that time. A nice little café with its own outside garden, very private.

Many rooms of interesting memorabilia from the WWII Occupation of Guernsey. Of special interest is one of three German Enigma machines used in the island. Two interesting films showing plus a small but welcome tea room and garden. £6 adult entrance charge (no Senior rate)....More
