Run entirely by volunteers, this piece of the Atlantik Wall has been preserved to teach what was and should not be repeated. Expect to spend about 40 minutes here right from the amazing sight of the railroad gun not much unlike the one that actually...More

What an excellent museum of the coast defences with an immense gun mounted on a railway track nect to the batterie. Very surprisingly, a private museum. They have amassed an extraordinary amount of information, not only on the Nazi defences against a British invasion across...More

The Todt battery is one of 4 WW2 gun emplacements in the area and the only one that has survived. If you look through the nearby forest, you can see another one blown up and rotting away. The museum is quite small, you can cover...More

If you are in the Calais area this privately owned museum is well worth a visit. As other TA reviewers have stated outside the massive battery, the K5 Railway Gun is an interesting exhibit along with other defences the Germans installed along the Atlantic Wall....More

Interesting, highly atmospheric place. So eerie to walk where notorious world leaders have gone before. Well worth a visit! K5 Leopold railway gun is massive.

Visited here after Eperleques and Mimeyoques. This is a good museum, well laid out. The original guns were used for scrap after the war, but it would be great if there were some form of mock up to show the scale of the original. There...More

We visited this on a chilly misty day. This only added to feelings of disquiet. It was eerie to see the huge gun pointed at English Channel port. Inside the huge concrete bunker there were well labelled, English, German and French, displays of guns, vehicles,...More

We did not know what to expect other than a huge bunker and a railway gun. The tour is very interesting, going through a even bigger bunker than we thought. Very interesting info about the building of the Batterie and the use of it. Very...More
