Wow!! I’m absolutely blown away by this museum, or rather ‘historical park’. There is so much to see during the time you’re here, and really helpfully, everything is translated into multiple languages. It is so informative and interesting and really, really worth a visit if...More

I came here expecting to walk around, see a lot of great stuff and leave. Instead, we buy our tickets and told we have to wait 5 minutes for the tour to start. 10 minutes later we're told, 5 more minutes. More people show up,...More

Well worth a visit with lots of information on the V1 & V2 programmes €10 entrance fee which I think is a little overpriced hence the 4x rating.

It's difficult to take in the amount of concrete that was used to build this factory. The USAF bombs bounced off it like tennis balls but the really big dent was put in it with a Barnes Wallis 'Tall Boy' bomb. I'm not surprised that...More

This preserved blockhouse is where Hitler wanted to build large numbers of V2 rockets to launch over to London towards the end of WW2. It was also the site of an underground liquid oxygen plant. The plan was never likely to have been successful as...More

What a place. Very low key and the main event (the Blockhaus itself) is well hidden and is impressive as you round the corner. Very good speaker / audio guide that plays it load over the site and gives it an eerie quality. Well worth...More
