This place is just awesome, dedicated to the German WW2 Rocket Programme. The word impressive does not begin to describe the Bunker, which you get to enter to see exhibits and films. For anybody interested in the V1 and V2 you have to visit here, and more than once.

We visited on a cold November day with no idea what to expect. The displays were well labelled with information in French, English, German and one other (can't remember the fourth) there were written, audio and visual displays throughout. The toilet are a little drafty & chilly and there is a small cafe inside of the gift shop. Parking was... More

This is an amazing place - terrifying. Excellent displays, commentaries and a film all bring out details of this extraordinary place. So interesting and do grim. Thank goodness it was bombed!

This an very interesting museum dedicated to those who lost their lives building this vast building for the Nazis. This a very moving place to visit and the audio commentary is extremely well produced and gives a viivd account of the construction by slave labour and the destruction by allied air forces during WW@

I had seen a few documentaries about the place on TV, but to see it in real life was awesome a real eye opener for people interested in WW 2

When the Blockhaus loomed through the trees, it turned out to be a lot bigger than expected. It's hard to do its real size any justice on photo. The history of the place adds a lot to the atmosphere so me and my girlfriend (who isn't particularly into world war sites) thoroughly enjoyed our one and a half hour visit.

This is an amazing site that shows the achievements of those who were forced to build it by the Nazi regime. The size and scale of this structure is amazing, well worth a visit.

Please allow a minimum of two hours for your visit as there are many boards to read and audio listen to. Bear in mind that, if it is busy when you visit, you may need to listen to the end of the audio in French or German or Dutch before you get your chance (adding to the time you take).... More
