It's quite a good place to visit gives you a good insight as to what they had to put up with, I'm sure the kids of today would find it a very interesting place

This visit facilitated a level of understanding of the reality of what people went through. The experience was quite interesting, but it was cold and dank and smelly and damp. The unpleasant nature of it increased the point of the visit, but also made me keep the visit short. It wasn't a complete day out, we'd also visited the hat... More

I found the visit fascinating with many of the areas still set up as they would have been when these shelters were used. To add to the these tours, once a month they to a night tour by torch light.

It was a great museum to visit. Value for money and just when you thought it had finished more tunnels to go down

having been past this place many times and wondered what it was i finally decided to pay the fee and go in. Its a bit interesting but basically a big dark human made cave system.

This is one of the best "small" museums I have visited - though in fact it is quite large, a veritable warren of tunnels. Obviously you get an excellent insight into the unique environment of an air raid shelter. Then, too, the audio guide successfully brings alive life inside the tunnels, not least the humour and steadfastness that kept people... More

First of all, for a family of 2 adults and 3 children, we only paid £9.50 which was great. When you pay and enter the air raid shelters, you are taken into a small, dark room where there are images projected onto the walls and you listen to some audio which is supposed to make you feel like you are...

I'd read about these a while ago and when an opportunity came up to visit I was glad I did! The recreated areas, with plenty of information, give an excellent insight into how it must have been during the war years. There is an extended tour available which takes you further into the tunnel complex, away from the lit areas.... More

If you have a couple of hours spare and are in the Stockport area then this is well worth a visit. The exhibition starts with an audio video show giving you the basic history of the air raids of ww2 and the local area. After this you can wander the tunnels along a fixed route where there are information points... More
