Don't know how many times I have been through this part of France and never knew this was here. Saw a leaflet in the IBIS Coquelles so decided to take a look on our way to Bruges, So glad we did because its a gob smackingly eerie eye opener. Damaged by UK bombing raids, a large part of it still... More

About 30 minutes from Calais and if you are planning on seeing WW2 history no better place to start. It is not easy to find went down some very narrow back lanes, but when you walk around and come face to face with the mass of concrete that housed such destruction and see the little damage that we were able...

Visited whilst on a motorbike tour of wartime sites, we were given a warm welcome and shown to the dedicated bike park. The exhibits that are positioned in the woodland are very interesting but when you reach the Blockhaus prepare to be astounded, being able to go inside some of the building made my visit. Dont forget to listen to... More

Very interesting historic site, with good explanations all the way round via an address system which you activate by pressing your language button. Very thought provoking and quite sad when you see the size of the facility and understand the background of how it was constructed and the purpose it served. An excellent reminder of why we should never let... More

When you arrive at the Blockhaus, you will probably be worried that your journey may not have been worth it. The last part of your journey (from whichever direction you try) will probably have involved some "interesting" minor roads. The car park is usually no more than half full. There is a van selling frites and very good (and very... More

A fellow camper recommended we visit the Blockhaus. It was easy to get to and well sign posted. Reasonably priced for a family of 4 at €22. As you meander through the woods taking in information along the way the trees clear and the magnitude of the building hits you. Our children aged 15 and 6 were amazed at the... More

We decided to visit to see what we had only read about. The Blockhaus is an imposing structure and awesome to behold. The various commentary points on the way round are very informative and help you to understand how dangerous the V1 & V2 rockets were in WW2.

Impressive museum just over the French border: a lot of information, but brought in a very interesting way. I have never been in a more striking installation of the trains to concentration/work/extermination camps as here... I would highly recommend this whole museum to everybody who is in the neighbourhood. It is worth every cent to visit.
