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

This is a definite "MUST" for all visitors to London, especially if you like history. But even if you are not a history buff it is good to remember that this great man and his country were brave enough to takea final stand against German aggression. The layout of the museum is user-friendly and very entertaining. Leave yourself at least... More

The last time we were in London we did not visit this site. However upon our return to the States a number of friends said this had been a highlight of their trips. So, on our return to London the first week of October this was on our list. It is a very moving and worthwhile visit. My family of... More
