This museum is within easy walking distance of central St Peter Port, the castle, and is near the aquarium.
It’s housed in a series if tunnels constructed during the German occupation of the Channel Islands in World War 2. One of the tunnels was unfinished, and its interesting to see the conditions that the labourers were forced to work in to construct them.
There is a small display of a few wartime vehicles, predominantly a German truck and some motorcycles, but the bulk of the displays concern the German occupation and the lives of the islanders during that time. There is a great deal of material packed into this museum and, depending on your level of interest in WW2, could easily take an hour to see. There are many displays dedicated to German and Allied weaponry, uniforms and equipment, mock up displays of things like a machine gun and radio post, and original decrees / documentation from the occupation.
There are also some displays dedicated to World War 1 and earlier, but the strength of the museum is the fascinating insight it provides into the lives of the occupiers and islanders during this time, with material from predominantly Jersey and Guernsey, but also some items from the other islands. One thing that I thought could have been represented in more detail would be the labour camps that existed at the time.
A very interesting museum. The island also has an excellent German Occupation museum which is not far from the airport, and is also well worth a visit for those interested in WW2.
