Highly informative, covers all aspects of the occupation, not just the history of the tunnels themselves. Does a great job of telling the human side of the story with some excellent exhibits. Friendly staff topped things off nicely. Well worth a visit.
If you are interested in history this is well worth a visit. Really brings to life what it was like during the occupation. Lots of moral dilemmas to think about faced with hunger. Also the lady in the tea room was so friendly and the food was good, nicely served on mixed china crockery. Also if you visit the tunnels first you get a 10% discount in the tea rooms.
