About
The primary location of the museum foundation is an authentically decorated command bunker of type 608 (Battalions,- Departmental or regimentalCommand post). From this bunker and the nearby villas was by the occupying military command Stutzpunkgruppe Scheveningen lined. The bunker is mostly original furnishings and gives visitors the unique experience of a tangible past. There are also original historical objects of German, British, Canadian and American forces exhibited. In the adjacent personnel bunker type 622 (Doppelgruppenunterstand) Is a 'time capsule'; one of the two common rooms furnished with only unrestored objects. The visitor gets the impression that the bunker since the end of World War II has remained untouched. In reality, most looted bunkers in the Netherlands after the war and stripped of all valuable parts. The other lounge is an exhibition space for photographs, art and historical objects.

I thought this is just another bunker, but I was dead wrong. Although only three bunkers, the volunteer tour guides were so good you just want to know more about WW2 in Schevenigen!!! (The tour guide in the picture was really really good. He was very knowledgeable). I must say that this was one of my tour on war places.

All the exhibits were authentic and original. Imagine the time and effort these guys put in to restore the place! I fully recommend this to everyone including those with children to learn more about WW2.

Go look out for it via Google map. Oh yes, do check the opening times. As of writing, they only open on Sundays.

The get to the Atlantikwall Musuem we used a tram (number 5 or 9) and got off at the Nieuwe Duinweg stop. We found the museum very interesting. It was amazing that 3400 buildings were demolished and 135,000 inhabitants evacuated in order to build the “Stützpunktgruppe Scheveningen”.

This is only a small museum that is only open (10 to 4) on Sunday. It is run by volunteers who also give a very good (optional) guided tours.

For €3 it was worth a visit and we should not forget the events that happening here in my parents and grandparents lifetime.

For the general public this is probably not worth a visit.
The opening days are restricted
The bunker is small and cramped
There are no other facilities (toilet, bookshop, food etc.)
It is no way suitable for prams or wheel-chairs
And there is not much to see
BUT
If you are an enthusiast this is a Widerstandsnest 318 command bunker.... guarding the complex where Seyss-Inquart (Nazi ruler of occupied Netherlands 1940-45) had his HQ.

I think you will find our opening hours improved: we are open every Sunday from March through October. Of course, the location is not very big, for it is a bunker. However, since your visit we have opened another bunker, totalling three sites to visit at the same location. You seem to have missed our excellent selection of books available on site as well as the charming facilities, offering refreshments and WC a mere 15 meters from our bunker, at "De Boshut".

I was really impressed by how well preserved and reconstructed the bunkers and individual items were. I took a guided tour and it was absolutely fascinating. The guides are remarkably knowledgeable so they can share so many interesting WWII stories. Definitely worth visiting if you are in the Hague!

Our guide round these bunkers was well educated in their history and really made for an informative tour. He spoke Dutch and English on our tour to ensure everyone got the most out of it. There are several interesting artifacts and it's clear to see the ingenuity and organisation of the Germans. It was quite busy when we went around lunch time. I'd recommend going early on a Sunday. Well worth the visit.

An excavated system of bunkers, a command bunker, latrine bunker and troop bunker with museum. We had a guide, who gave us a detailed history of the bunker and the role of the Netherlands in WW2. Informative tour and a small museum. Only open on a Sunday. It is also near a cafe.

Most of the German coastal defense, the Atlantikwall, is no longer to be seen. In the Dutch dunes, the bunkers are now in restricted areas or covered under sand. In urban areas they have been demolished or removed. The foundation Atlantikwall has preserved one bunker as museum, and kept its contents as close to the original setting as possible. Not many surviving people have a first hand experience as this was a military zone, Sperrgebiet. Inhabitants of the Hague were evacuated to other areas.
The museum, run by volunteers, is open on Sundays at a small entrance fee.

If you’re interested in WW2 history, this is a unique place to visit and worth your time. It’s small and interesting, and not very expensive.
