A small museum packed with interesting exhibits. We spent quite a long time here and finished off with coffee and cake in the very pretty garden. Well worth a visit. A good insight of life in occupied Guernsey.

We found this museum detailed and extremely good and very moving. Appreciated the reconstructed street and looking at how the people of Guernsey lived at that time. A little off the bus route but well worth a visit.

A very interesting museum. Although it looks small from the outside, it really is like the Tardis. There is so much information and a video plus many displays about the occupation and what it felt like to live under German occupation during World War II....More
