What a wonderful museum. Worth every penny. So much stuff to see and was so interesting. Very much recommend for anyone visiting the island.
Really enjoyed this museum, in my opinion the best of the 'war' related museums in the island. Very interesting exhibits well displayed without going OTT on being interactive. Very basic tea room. We spent about 2 hours looking round, good value at £6.
