This was a surprise. I did not expect to enjoy this but it was awesome. The history and the fact it is so well preserved. Great. The elf guided tour was very informative . I would do it again.

The war rooms really are beautifully preserved, but that's about it- not too informative or especifically interesting. I would definitely not say it's a must see.

This place, just like Bletchley, shows the resolve and backbone our leaders and their staff had when Hitler was running amok through Europe. Being set out exactly as it was, with most of the original fixtures and fittings, you can get a real feel for how it must have been during some long, long, days. Would our current lot have... More

As a fan of WW2 history I couldn't pass up the war rooms. Pretty cool seeing everything the way it was back in the 40's. Its nice how they stagger groups going in and the audio tour is included in admission. The Winston Churchill museum was an added bonus and had a ton of information and artifacts about Churchill.

Terrific retrospective of all things Churchill. If you love history and WWII in particular, this is a must-see. Nice displays but you'll need plenty of time to see the entire exhibit. Plan on at least an hour and a half. This is more than just a few rooms set up the way the looked, there's a whole display on all... More

Not to be missed...the actual rooms which Churchill, family and staff were sheltered during the London Blitz...the meeting rooms in which the brave response to Hitler's invasion was brilliantly strategized and a museum dedicated to the life of the PM. One can easily spend two hours learning and experiencing what went on during this dark dismal period in our history.... More

I am not much of a history buff, but this museum was excellent. My wife and two kids (14 & 11) all enjoyed the tour. The thing that I enjoyed the most was that all of the rooms were essentially the same as they were when the war ended, and when the lights were shut off after the war. Excellent... More

Extremely informative without being overwhelming, worth every cent. I would recommend getting their early though as the line for entry builds up quite quickly, before 10am would be ideal.

Visited this early as I thought it might get crowded and was in fact the first one in. You are given a audio stick that is so common with a lot of attractions world wide so you can move around at your own pace. I found the tunnels very interesting and the stories behind the various rooms off the tunnels... More
