The German Occupation Museum in Guernsey is home to what is undoubtedly the finest collection of Second World War relics in the Channel Islands.
The museum is situated at Les Houards in the Forest Parish and was opened in 1966 by Richard Heaume, a founding member of the Occupation Society. The museum uses audio-visual technology, as well as a vast range of display and dioramas to convey the stories and experiences of Islanders during the five years of enemy occupation.
For those who want to explore more of the Occupation story, Guernsey History Trails offers a great app guide which is available to buy. Covering the Occupation 1940-1945, the 2 self-guided tour trails - the St Peter Port Trail by foot and the Island Trail - will let you walk in the path of history while enjoying some of the most beautiful vantage points in Guernsey. Each walk takes approximately 2 hours if you walk it in its entirety or you could alternatively explore by bicycle or car.
