Amazing history. So interesting. The Churchill display is so interesting. Rooms set up as they were in the war.

I spent part of the morning here yesterday. At 17.50 per adult ticket (children under 15 free), this is a value for the whole family. The lines are not long compared to other sites in Westminster. The museum is a self-guided audio tour with a provided audio device. The underground rooms are interesting, and you learn a great deal about... More

My traveling companions swore this was amazing and so informative. I personally spent the hour and a half feeding my soul at the exquisite park across the street

Fascinating recreation of Churchill's underground headquarters during WWII. My only criticism is that it is difficult to find the displays corresponding to the audio tour in the museum/timeline section and there is no one to ask. Give yourself plenty of time for a visit.

I took my family to the Churchill War Rooms and stepped back into a different era. We were all engrossed for a highly enjoyable 3 hours. The audio guides were informative. Tip: Make sure you know some significant dates for some surprises on the huge touchscreen timeline. Highly recommended.

This gives a true reflection of what is was like planning behind the scenes of World War 2. You see where Churchill slept and worked as the rooms are frozen in time and set out as they were so many years ago

Sweetie put this at the top of the tourist list for this trip, I had been in my teens at an early trip to London. He loved it, I was pleased and not as bored as I feared. There are two parts, the War Rooms and then half way thru is a Churchill Museum. The wait went to the curb... More

The cost for this attraction is over the top with £17.50 for entrance fees well over the top for what is provided. The entry attendant was quite rude however this was to be expected should anyone else have to put up with very rude Middle Eastern people pushing in front of people that had been waiting for well over an...

A fantastic and absolutely engaging museum, it has been so wonderfully put together to tell & exhibit an amazing man in challenging times. It was a museum we could have spent more time in. The audio tour was really informative and the whole experience made you fell transported back in time. Very highly recommended! This was another attraction included in... More
