This is a wonderful, yet sad place to visit. The World War section in the bunker is very powerful and has the potential to upset. It is important to recognise what this was and what it could have been so it never happens again. It...More

Probably unique (fortunately) representing a period of history that could have been so different. Impressive monument to those who died and a warning about the consequences of unchecked evil. It’s cool underground so take a jumper. The history of rocket flight is fascinating. At times...More

Lest we forget. This gives an indepth view of WWII, with footage, film, drawings and models. Some parts are not for young children, but others are, like the Space section. An important and well put together museum, with friendly knowledgeable staff.
