“Interesting”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

This was interesting to visit if you enjoy military history - there's plenty to be had here! Originally built to house huge tanks to refuel U-boats, it was never completed. It now displays lots of second world war militaria, alongside artefacts from other periods in Guernsey's history. The woman on the desk was a little snooty though - most places give concessions for children with special educational needs. Not here - she was adamant we should pay full price for our autistic son. We never expect discount but always ask if concessions are possible due to our son not really taking an interest or one of us having a whistle stop tour. Never mind!

“Lots of "stuff"”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

The tunnel setting of this museum is quite exciting, but once you are inside, it is packed with display cases which are not particularly well-labelled. I found the sheer volume of Nazi items quite disconcerting. Worth a visit, but probably no need to revisit once you've been once.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

On first glance this is a brightly lit air-conditioned museum with numerous artefacts on display, but closer inspection leads to the discovery that the artefacts are not particularly well-organised and there is limited information about each one. It would make more sense if the WW2 artefacts were contained in one area and other features including the local militia/light infantry had their own separate areas.

“Not a large museum but lots to see”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

We have visited this museum on previous holidays but always seem to find something new to see each time we came. It was good to see a good section on WW1

“very limited and basic”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

small luke warm cups of poor quality coffee and mediocre cakes. Problem seemed to be that one man was both running the café and selling entry tickets.
