This is my second visit to the Tunnels, it is a good hour and a half to two hours of incredible information, displays and a very emotional experience.. If you are genuinely interested in history then this is a must see.

It's like going through WWII history around this island. It's informative and educational. It's the best thing we have done so far on the island.

The historical importance of the hospital and tunnels to occupancy sadly were point of fact though interesting. Cannot say if all details were 100% correct, yet taken at face value showed the type of life and death of the enslaved Russian and European people's. Plus...More

Wasn’t sure whether to visit, very glad we did, this took an hour longer than anticipated, allow 2 hours. Young children will tire of what they may call “boring museum stuff for oldies” but we were captivated (in our 50’s) very thought provoking, interpretation excellent.

It depends on their ages as it is fairly cold down there. The older the children the better.

No you won’t. You wouldn’t know they were tunnels as such. They are light, airy but cool. An excellent museum of German occupation.
