“History to be cherished”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

It is difficult to imagine the strain of war time London and the greatness of Winston Churchill. This museum brings it to life. England would have been lost and the world a much different and darker place had not these brave souls drawn a line. Okay, it is not an amusement ride. It is a real brush with greatness. My wife had no idea and she hated to leave. It is not just about British history, it is about those who fought to preserve freedom for the world.

“Churchill war museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Very informative and interesting. Not too overcrowded as they stagger the amount let in. Audio guide is easy to use and provides a range of information about churchill's private and public life.

“War rooms and Churchill museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We loved the museum - thought it was very well done and gave a sense of what it must have been like. I am not sure why there are such abysmal reviews but we (myself and my family) are history enthusiasts so that may be the reason for such discrepancy. I highly recommend this museum.

“I loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

It seems to have closed down now but I hope it reopens when the building work at London bridge station is done. I spent a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon here. Learnt a lot about ww2. Recommended if you're interested in 20th century British history.

“THIS ATTRACTION IS NOW CLOSED”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Churchils Britain at War experience at 64-66 Tooley Street (nr. London Bridge) - London. This attraction has now closed. The web site has not been updated regarding closure or any future location.
It is also worth knowing that the London Dungeon attraction (further along the street) has now moved beside the London Eye.
