The audio tour does a very good job of introducing you to how things were during the war. While you can take pictures, it is difficult because the light is so low. The attached Churchill Museum is well worth the time, but there is a tremendous amount of reading involved. I spent nearly three hours taking it all in and I did not read everything. this is a must see attraction that will require more than just a pass through to absorb its significance and story.

This is a somewhat hidden museum that isn't typically highlighted in any "must-do" list of London, and I think that's a shame. This museum is an interesting look into how WWII was run during the blitz. Not only does it give a look into how the war was run, but you get a strong sense of just how severely WWII impacted the lives of Londoners. Personal accounts from people who worked in the bunker make for a museum that is very engaging and relatable. There is definitely something here for everyone and shouldn't be missed.

I had visited before but found it so busy, we rushed through without taking everything in. This time we went as soon as it opened and it was much easier to take our time and see everything we wanted to see. As our children are slightly older (16 AND 12) now they also got more out of it. I would not recommend visiting with young children. Although we did enjoy the walk through the rooms which are kitted out as they were at the end of the war, I preferred the museum section which has lots of interactive displays about Churchills life and work and it was interesting to see how his early life and family had shaped the man he became. The audio tour was good as you could enter in numbers where displayed and just listen to the bits you were interested in rather than following the whole tour. There were also extra recordings in certain areas if you chose to listen to them. We spent a good couple of hours there and stopped in the cafe on the way round which a limited range of reasonably priced items. The shop was nice too with a good range of items from pocket money toys to more expensive items. The entry is quite expensive but we found 2 for 1 offers with National Rail. Last time I think we used Tesco rewards - it is worth shopping around as lots of people seemed to be using one offer or another.
I would probably still visit again in a couple of years.

Had previously visited prior to the Churchill museum extension, the outcome being the 5 stars it now deserves. It is a first class exhibition and completes the War room experience. A must for anyone with an interest in the politics of WWII.

The exhibition was really interesting and covered a lot of Churchill's life and the role the war rooms played during World War 2. A worthwhile visit in rain or shine for any War historians or those just fascinated in it.
