Just the atmosphere (in the old German Occupation tunnels) was enough to remind us what the people of Guernsey went through. Many, many displays of military regalia and artefacts, notices from the Occupation.

Excellent and very interesting although a knowledge of German and French would help. Museum covers both WW1 and WW2 occupation and other island conflicts.

The Underground museum has more WWII stuff than I could have imagined. Medals, uniforms, helmets, knives, communication documents, and on and on. All in this 'small' museum built into the bunker used by the Germans. I would strongly encourage anyone interested in this topic to...More
