Overview

A holiday in Jersey is not complete without a visit to Jersey War Tunnels to learn about and experience one of the most difficult periods in the Island’s history.The story of the German Occupation of Jersey is as compelling as it is strange to think that this small area of Britain was Occupied by the Nazis and forced to fly the Swastika for five dark years.The Jersey War Tunnels are no ordinary museum, they are an unforgettable experience. Dug deep into the hillside within St Peter’s Valley, the Tunnels were originally intended to be a barracks and ammunition store for the occupying forces. Today they tell the story of the Occupation, looking at how all sides coped under such extreme conditions and examining the daily dilemmas that were faced by island residents and the authorities, whether Jersey, British or German.Outside the Tunnels, you can enjoy quiet moments in the Garden of Reflection or a woodland walk along the historic War Trail. Refresh yourself in the Pantry Cafe or enjoy the shop and craft activities in LoveBird Too.

We visited here on a very wet morning on an organised trip by one of the coach companies. It was fascinating to see so much information about the occupation and to feel what it must have been like. There are examples of transport, medical care...More

The war tunnels were built as an underground hospital and ammunition store by forced labourers bought to Jersey by the nazis during WW2. This exhibition is the story of Jersey's occupation by the Germans. We went late on a Sunday afternoon and had the place...More

I travelled through the tunnels with my husband on a wet day recently. I marvelled what the locals went through in the time of occupation and how little details of televisions on heads of mannequins gave the sense of what the Germans were saying to...More

I would recommend getting to the war tunnels as they open otherwise the queues are long in our experience, we returned after visiting and finding bus loads of people joining an already long queue. We chose to have audio guides but you could probably do...More

There was a large amount of information and a lot to read and see, but I felt it was sensitively explained and included some interactive displays and activities. The inclusion of personal stories from Islanders there at the time makes it come alive and gives...More

Good exhibit, very informative. We visited early afternoon on a wet day and although busy we didn't have to queue. A lot to read (although there are also audio guides which I think cost an additional £5). Quite a lot of walking too although all...More

Visited here in July, my husband had visited over 30 years before, but this was my first visit. The exhibition was well thought out, giving a real taste of life during the German occupation. Reading the real life stories was very humbling. Spent a couple...More
