Musee De La Guerre Or Parc St Pierre Reviews & Ratings
This a very educational ww2 museum. It'll take you an hour or so to walk around, your supplied with a device that you key in the relevant room number to listen to more information about what's happening in the area you are visiting. Free parking outside along the road, keep all valuable items in the boot/locked away as immigrants roam the area. A police station is next door to the museum so the car should be ok. The museum only accepts cash(€).
Loved the way they have preserved the Nazi bunker in the middle of the park. The amount of relics and WW2 newspapers and document they have is astounding. They have integrated the history of Calais during the war into the whole history of the war very seamlessly and easy to follow. They provide audio guide in English, too. 4/5 stars because the smell of mold was pretty intense and in some rooms it was a bit annoying to breathe even tho I am not allergic. Worth a visit.
This was so interesting! Lots of different rooms all telling a story and lots of interesting facts and things to look at
Well worth a visit. Interesting. Doesn't take long.
Rich in History. Should be there early in the morning. We ran out of time as such running through the exhibits.
