Overview

A holiday in Jersey is not complete without a visit to Jersey War Tunnels to learn about and experience one of the most difficult periods in the Island’s history.The story of the German Occupation of Jersey is as compelling as it is strange to think that this small area of Britain was Occupied by the Nazis and forced to fly the Swastika for five dark years.The Jersey War Tunnels are no ordinary museum, they are an unforgettable experience. Dug deep into the hillside within St Peter’s Valley, the Tunnels were originally intended to be a barracks and ammunition store for the occupying forces. Today they tell the story of the Occupation, looking at how all sides coped under such extreme conditions and examining the daily dilemmas that were faced by island residents and the authorities, whether Jersey, British or German.Outside the Tunnels, you can enjoy quiet moments in the Garden of Reflection or a woodland walk along the historic War Trail. Refresh yourself in the Pantry Cafe or enjoy the shop and craft activities in LoveBird Too.

I must admit to not knowing too much about the occupation, especially that the UK made a decision not to defend the CI at the outset of WW2. However, on leaving the tunnels, I knew a whole lot more. It was unnerving in places, especially...More

The trip to the Jersey tunnels was most enlightening. Although I was aware of the German occupation during WW 2 of the Channel Islands I was unaware of the extensive underground network built during that time. The museum serves as a reminder of the hardships...More

Very busy when we got there as a few coaches arrived, we joined the queue, it moved slowly until a lady said we could move along as some people were stuck reading and looking at photos on the wall. Very interesting and very realistic, we...More

Fascinating and informative and wondering why this information was not included in the World War 2 history which I did at O Level. The personal stories told through "talking heads" made it very personal, The lovely café at the end was an added bonus

This is a return visit..last visited 20 years ago..many improvements...much less emphasis on the horror of it all..seems to have had to be politically correct now which deminshes from how truly awful it all was..

We booked at the centre of St Helier and wanted the double decker bus experience too. Not disappointed. Was cold in tunnels so you need to take a jacket. Very interesting and could have spent longer in there but too cold as no coat. Great...More

Their website shows open 1st March to 31st October Monday to Sunday from 10 to 6 (last entry to main exhibition at 4.30). Suggest you arrive early in day if by car - free car park can get very full.
