Nice static displays, very informative, in fact there is so much to read you can't finish it in a day. The audio guide was brilliant, the souvenir shop was stocked w beautiful vintage war posters.

Very interesting exhibit of life in London during WWII with recreations of the extensive rooms underground inhabited by those running the defense of England. The audio tour was very well done and worth the time. There is a lot of walking to access the site and once you are inside. An older member of our party probably should not have... More

My husband and I got 2 for 1 tickets for this attraction by showing our rail tickets - this made the price a bit more reasonable! I'm not sure I would have made it through the door of this attraction had it been full price, which would have been a shame! The only other thing that stops me giving this... More

This looked like an interesting little tour through the war rooms of London, but it wasn't. It was a full on museum, much of which on Winston Churchill. It was actually very large and was packed full of interesting information on him, and some on the war. It is definitely worth going to.

Just an overall educational and important place to visit. Great for history buffs. Amazing to see it all in the exact state it was left in when the war was over.

Come early in the morning because the queues just get progressively longer throughout the day. Also, permit yourself at least 2 hours to fully appreciate the museum, and bring a jumper because it gets cold underground, especially in the Churchill Museum. This attraction permits photography, but no flash. You’ll want to come prepared, as many of the exhibits are of... More

This was totally cool! SO much history. It is honestly just the same as it was all those years ago - they just turned off the lights and went home when the war was over. The audio tour offers tons on facts and information. My family and I really enjoyed this.

I kept hearing that we needed to go see this and I was not looking forward to it as much as my teenage son who is a history buff. But, I thoroughly enjoyed the audio, self-guided tour. It's programmed such that you tell it which module to play and when, which is an improvement over some (eg. Alcatraz), which just... More

Visited this this museum for a second time and again it did not disappoint. Thoroughly thrilling from start to finish. Truly get an insight to life in the war rooms through the war and a good insight into how much of a hero Churchill truly was both on and off the battle field. Only downside is that it is pretty...
