Great place to go and visit, allow more than a few hours to really take in all the history there. Good little cafe inside the exhibition and lots of things to look at in the shop.

Well presented history of the War rooms of Churchill. Amazing how those Brits survived the war with their communications center cleverly placed here. Well preserved. Well presented. Worth the price of admission

A real treat for those who enjoy learning about the past. As soon as you enter the rooms it's like you have walked into that era. They are left just as they were when war ended. The Churchill museum is definitely worth a visit!

as an avid WWII buff I have enjoyed many museums including the DDay in New Orleans, Documentation Center in Nuremburg, and the Normandy sites in France. This just disappointed and pains me not to recommend it. The actual war rooms are interesting and well preserved. I thought the commentary was not very well done. It was strange wandering around the... More

Really enjoyed the War Rooms. The self-guided audio tour gave good descriptions and explanations. The rooms are pretty much as they were when the last person left after the war finished and provided an intriguing glimpse into what it would have been like at the time. There is also a Churchill Museum with lots of Churchill memorabilia, don't be too... More

I think is probably the coolest thing we did in London. I really think everybody should see the Churchill War Rooms.

If you enjoy history, this is not to be missed! The rooms are fascinating and left just as they were when the war was over. Don't skip the Churchill museum/exhibit at the end!

When we came here for a visit, I didn’t realize that in addition to the underground bunker there would also be this large, very informative albeit rather dark but very modern interactive museum. It was so interesting we easily spent at least an hour on the museum alone. Both the War Rooms and museum were very interesting and a must... More

Real history from WW2 preserved in the heart of London. You can go round at your own pace using phones. It may appear an expensive experience, but you will probably take at least 2 hours to do it - and you can get an annual pass to the IWM. Never fear - there is a good tea room!

I learned so much more here than I ever did from European history classes. It is one place that I always urge visitors to London to check out.
