We had a good look round the outside and surrounding is beautiful and worth heading over to but unfortunately the opening hours were short.. 15.15 to 16.00 hours in October to be precise so please make sure that you time it right! But as I said it is a beautiful surround and worth having a meander around the whole ramparts!

We toured this museum with a French guide and English translation. My husband is a French speaker and told me the guide followed the English translation almost word for word. The guide was able to answer any question in English. The museum was interesting, especially after visiting some of the War museums in Guernsey. Included is a 45 minute movie with real slides from the war years. Very interesting when comparing the before and after views of the ramparts. The architects did a remarkable job on the rebuilding of the walls.

Great museum inside old war bunkers on the edge of St Malo. Tours only in French, with an English card to read, but it doesnt really give enough info, or follow the guide well enough. Interesting things to look at though, and the outisde space (free of charge) has some old gun turrets and a nice walk around the edge of the cliff overlooking the marina. Lots of space for the children to run around. Not easy to find though!

It is quite difficult to find unless you have studied the map in advance. You access by car through the municipal campsite- I missed that and had to find a space lower down.

A fascinating visit. The guide had an Englush translation and spoke excellent English. Because we had a few young children the guide spoke very ckeat and deliberately in Frenchand I was able to follow most of the commentary. Any if my questions were answered in excellent English. Fascinating history of St Malo and the war as well as a most interesting site.

Great guided tour giving the history and the story of the importance of this strategic site. The narrative is in French, but there's a script to follow and our guide had pretty good English.
