We passed this museum on the tram. it looked very interesting from where we were, there were a lot of visitors there and they looked very cold. You get a good view of some of the guns and bunkers from the road. I am also disabled and I would say it is not disabled friendly. On a nice day I would say it would be well worth a visit.

This museum does not seem to be well publicised.

We have been driving many times past this mysterious location, with canons facing the North Sea. So we finally decided to visit the place. Not so easy to reach, but when you are there, you are instantly timewarped in WW1 and 2. The site looks just like then, in a immaculate condition. Meters and meters of underground corridors connect the main places together. A magnificent testimonial of the Atlantic Wall...

In 2012, my wife and I visited the Atlantic Wall and Museum in Ostende, Belgium. The tour is amazing and well worthwhile when in the area. This is part of the Atlantic Wall which was constructed prior to and during WWII to prevent an invasion of Europe by Allied forces by the Germans, and overseen by Field Marshall, Erwin Rommel. The site consists of honeycombs of tunnels and bunkers facing the English channel as well as gun emplacements which remain today.You gain a unique perspective of this place where the Germans looked out over the Channel anticipating the Allied Invasion as they did. The Museum is adjacent to the tunnels and bunkers and contains books and other displays related to the history of the Wall.There is considerable walking involved and those with fear of enclosed places need to take note.

Very complete and informative museum about the great world war and the second world war. Really worth. Also the home of Prince Charles and the Museum of the Belgian monarchy is worth.

I saw this place whilst travelling on the Kusttram, so stopped off to have a look.

Fascinating history with an informative audio guide (included in the entrance fee). I was aware of the Atlantic Wall, but not of the WWI defences - and had no idea that so much of it was well preserved.

Well worth a visit.
