Having seen old WWII bunkers across French beaches, it was fascinating to see one that has been restored and opened to the public. The restoration is a work in progress, but do... read more

Having seen old WWII bunkers across French beaches, it was fascinating to see one that has been restored and opened to the public. The restoration is a work in progress, but do book in by telephone to have a wider tour of the parts of the complex that have been excavated. The guides are knowledgeable, and you get a real...

Not really knowing what to expect I was pleasantly surprised at the length of the tour, the extend of the bunkers and the areas restored. It was very educational and the tour was in English. An excellent place to go on a wet, wind swept day. Some disabled access to bunkers, guide had been one of those boys playing there... More

Very cool, was worth the trip. Not a place for the physically impaired as you have to climb a few ladders. They have the old unrestored part of the bunkers and have done a very nice job of restoration of about 30% of the rest. They are in the process of restoring as much as possible in the next couple...

Very nice staff of volunteers who make this museum possible. Great collection of attributes spread out over mutiple German bunkers in the Dutch dunes. They are still digging out a couple of them, so we'll be heading back there in time. These bunkers didn't see any 'action' during the war, but are nevertheless filled with history. Only opened on Sunday,... More

Wow what an unexpected piece of history just lying about , we sat on the wall and savaged our picnic before taking off across the dunes to savour the natural landscape and enjoying the amazing views . It is a sad place in some ways but the wildlife , flora and fauna compensate somewhat from the bitter history

If you are interested in WW2 history then don't miss this place. The 5€ per person for a one hour tour through the bunker complex is very cheap in compare to other similar places. The museum is small but has lots of interesting pieces and pictures. The volunteers are really doing a good job there. Thank you guys.

For anyone interested in the history of the second world war, and particularly the German occupation of the Netherlands, this is a must. Its amazing to be in the bunkers under the dunes where the German army would have been during this time and to see items they used day to do. We visited with two children, and from their... More

They are expanding the excavations around this museum (the actual Atlantic wall) all the time and you can get a guided tour through the old bunker on some days during the season. The museum itself shows several very interesting items from this bunkersystem. Also parts of a crashed plane and personal belongings of the pilots and others. Worth the visit... More

built by the organisation Todt- this is a small museum housed largely within a German bunker. The museum houses samll exhibits and has tableux displays showing equipmet used. Compared to some sections of the 'Atlantikwall' that can be seen elsewhere (Ostend, for example) this was a bit of a let down.The section itself is very interesting- but it is let... More

The museum is in an old bunker of the German Atlantic Wall from Worldwar II. It shows haw the soldiers lived there and tells about the History of the Atlantic wall with photographs, maps and and objects found after WW II. As me and my family visit this area since many decades we never fully understood why Dutch people treated... More
