A very fine collection of artefacts portraying Island life under Nazi rule. We easily spent a couple of hours here. The recreated sheet was great and the kids loved it. Highly recommended. Access via 71 bus route. Toilets & cafe onsite.

Small and quaint little place but the admissions man is highly informative and it’s well worth the visit for only £4!!

Interesting little museum by the airport. Great history. Probably not for small children as not interactive. £6. For adults. Good to learn of the 6 years of occupation.
