My partner and I visited this museum after a recommendation from a local business owner and we are so glad we did. It is one of the best museums we’ve ever been too. Some museums can be very unnecessarily wordy, or lacking in actual artefacts,...More

The most interesting aspect of this museum is the variety of artifacts - personal letters, newspaper cuttings, posters relating to the Occupation. It brings home the realities endured at the time. Easy to get to and a cafe is available on site. Worth a visit.

Well worth a visit if you are at all interested in the occupation of Guernsey by the Germans from 1940 to 45. The museum tells the story of what the islanders faced during those years and brings back the memories of their hardships.

A comprehensive collection of artefacts, along with some good short films which together give the visitor an accurate insight into the German Occupation on Guernsey. Our visit flavoured our whole impression of the island.

I admit we knew little about the effects of the occupation on the general population, visiting this fascinating little museum has helped to give an insight into life on Guernsey during that period. Really glad we went, worth the entry price.
