The guide is very good and extremely knowledgeable. It is good to visit this as well as one of the other occupation museums. Perhaps not so interesting for younger children.

This bunker is well kitted out with equipment and manikins that give you a feel for what it may have been like in the 1940s. This includes the signal room, a bunk room, toilets, the air pumps, signage and the officers' room. There is a...More
