What an eye opener! What these islanders and slave POW went through in 5 years during WW2. Their story is told in an interesting and chilling way. Take tissues.

This is a must visit museum. The unfinished, underground hospital is a perfect setting to tell the harrowing yet inspiring story of the Nazi occupation. Its not just a collection of objects (although the exhibits were very good) but a real insight into the lives...More

So much to see and be amazed by. A great experience with excellent documentary information at every turn. Take a warm coat even in summer as it is very cold and damp.

The last time we visited, it was just about the underground hospital but now it is all about the German occupation of Jersey. I found it to be very interesting and informative.

It depends on their ages as it is fairly cold down there. The older the children the better.

No you won’t. You wouldn’t know they were tunnels as such. They are light, airy but cool. An excellent museum of German occupation.
