We are so pleased we visited this museum. It is amazing how big the building actually is and it gives a true insight into what the Channel Islanders went through for the 5 years they were occupied. Do have a read of the personal diaries kept by locals in secret. The notices displayed put fear in you seeing how people were treated if they did not obey. Upstairs you will find vehicles and equipment used at the time. Be prepared for a lengthy visit and then enjoy a relaxing drink in the rear garden, weather permitting of course.

My husband loves the military side, I am more interested in the stories of the people, so this museum hit the target for both of us. We spent two and a half hours there, then walked the coast path. If you go make sure you go through the café, there is even more hiding up the stairs!

As well as military hardware, the museum has exhibits that capture what life was like in the 1940s - that is the part I most enjoyed.

We were doing a round island bus tour and decided to hop off at the airport and check this out. Only 10 minutes walk and well worth it.

Surprisingly well stocked and informative little museum with the feel of being run by people who are passionate about this aspect of Guernsey's past.

Strongly recommended even if you aren't that much into WW2 history.
