Overview

A holiday in Jersey is not complete without a visit to Jersey War Tunnels to learn about and experience one of the most difficult periods in the Island’s history.The story of the German Occupation of Jersey is as compelling as it is strange to think that this small area of Britain was Occupied by the Nazis and forced to fly the Swastika for five dark years.The Jersey War Tunnels are no ordinary museum, they are an unforgettable experience. Dug deep into the hillside within St Peter’s Valley, the Tunnels were originally intended to be a barracks and ammunition store for the occupying forces. Today they tell the story of the Occupation, looking at how all sides coped under such extreme conditions and examining the daily dilemmas that were faced by island residents and the authorities, whether Jersey, British or German.Outside the Tunnels, you can enjoy quiet moments in the Garden of Reflection or a woodland walk along the historic War Trail. Refresh yourself in the Pantry Cafe or enjoy the shop and craft activities in LoveBird Too.

Excellent place to visit, very thought provoking, well set out and good factual displays, can be a bit chilly in the tunnels, so suggest take a coat.

This was the number one item on my "to see" list during a recent visit to Jersey. The displays and sound made you feel as if you were there during the occupation. Before my visit, I had some misconceptions about the tunnel and had not...More

The museum is located within Hohlgangsanlage 8, a partially completed German military underground hospital complex. The museum was informative and...More

Didn't know what to expect, but so glad we went. Every part of the museum is interesting from history of occupation to real people perspectives and engineering/mathematics of the tunnels. Take your time and read everything, take it in and consider how distructive war is....More
