This tour was brilliant, i learnt alot and was amazed by the scale of this building. It's amazing how it's been left nearly exactly as it was when it was bombed and felt like we were able to see the reality of the impact of war.

We drove almost 90 minutes off our route to visit the Blockhaus not knowing what to expect. You must see this place... it is 100% worth the visit...

An extraordinary building with a well described history. I preferred to go without a guide, but found plenty of information available on the press-button multi-language system. Some interesting additional exhibits made it a worthwhile visit,

I took a group of motorcyclists to the Museum, or I would best describe it as An Experience on the way back from the Somme. Hard standing for the motorcycles and they allowed us to leave our Helmets in reception. We had a French guide who tried his best to speak fluent English, but around the site there we display...

Travelling south planned a stop here to walk dog in the forest but so glad we decided to visit this site. The sheer scale of human endeavour to create this structure is awe inspiring. On starvation rations and beatings it is unbelievable. We must never forget.

One of my favourite sites in the area. Very well presented with audio stations all round the site. Advise would be to get there at opening to have each listening station to yourself!

While staying in the area my husband and I decided to visit some of the historical sights. We listed La Coupule and the Blockhaus. The first to visit was Blockhaus and from parking the car we were blown away by the way everything was left as if the war had just ended! We were walking round and all of a... More

stumbled on this on our way to St.Omer the wife as reading through our good old guide to France and mentioned this place as a worthy visit.The commentary was so informative and thought provoking.Even our daughter was interested and didn't get bored.It can get busy so recommend early am before any tour buses get there.
