This museum is outstanding.you will have the opportunity to tour the underground quarter from which Churchill ran England during WW II. Ipes his private spaces and the many public space when his staff lived and worked. Listen to firsthand accounts from his staff and learn through interactive exhibits. Plan some time there don't rush thru it .

It did take us a little while to find this museum but glad we did. A very busy place. It's a good museum to visit it has a lot of history and makes you feel as if you were there in the war times, It shows you how the people worked and lived here. It is in a somewhat darkness... More

Long but worth it..Audio tour.Fascinating and informative. We wished there were better directions going from one station to the other(like arrows on the floor which we recommended). Get on line before 11a.m.

So glad we took the time to search out this underground museum! It is truly fascinating! The rooms are just as they were when they were in use. It is hard to imagine the amount and magnitude of the work conducted in these cramped and secretive quarters.These were the War Rooms of the Prime Minister of England during World War... More

Facinating slice of history - this museum is one of London's hidden gems. It is the underground bunker from which Winston Churchill, the WWII prime minister of England, ran the war. It has the underground rooms are just as they were left after WWII was over. It also includes a museum of his life, not only during the war but... More

I visited this museum when it first opened and in fairness it didn't change in the many years that it ran, that said it didn't need to, it was timeless and evocative of the warmly remembered by gone age. It managed an ambience with location and setting that I don't think you could have done in a more modern building... More

The horrors of Pearl Harbor in 1941 remain very firmly a part of American history. For Americans, imagine Pearl Harbor taking place over one year earlier, at night, more than 70 times, over the next nine months. For Brits, The Blitz, was a time when Britain's survival hung in the balance, held together by the heroic efforts of a small... More
