The German Occupation Museum

This museum really does contain a lot of objects and information. Everything from an 88 in the car park to items as obscure as a gas mask for a horse! There is a occupation street that you can walk through, many displays with explanations of different aspects of the occupation as well as a lot of equipment.

If you haven’t visited the museum I highly recommend it. You can find more about it here including opening times. At the time of writing it is open 10:00 to 13:00 everyday. Entrance fee as at June 2022 is £6.00 for adults or £3.00 for children. Entrance fees can only be paid in cash as they don’t have a card machine.

If you visit for the first time I would recommend allow an hour and a half to two hours to allow time to read the displays which explain all aspects of the occupation through from evacuation to liberation.

I thought I would share a few photographs of a visit in June 2022 to give you a flavour of what to expect.
