The Churchill War Rooms house the first national museum dedicated to Winston Churchill, where the exciting story of this great man is brought to life.
Fantastic museum. Goes over a lot of war history and even has a lot of the original items on display. Admission price was reasonable, especially considering just how large the museum actually is. It took us a couple of hours just to see everything on a weekday. They have a gift shop as well which was had a lot of interesting things.
Incredibly well preserved. The forethought of the British people to preserve these rooms were astounding. Nothing but authentic rooms filled with authentic items used during world war 2. It is an imensely interactive experience focusing on the Winston Churchill. Amazing experience for all even if you aren't a history lover.
Interesting museum but, much like most popular telling of British history, they focused too much on the contributions of one man. The more interesting story would have been about the individuals who worked in the bunker during the Blitz and what they did. Churchill's life has been chronicled enough
Very interesting. Really gives you an insight to what an incredible person Winston Churchill was. He is such an amazing orator, you can understand how his speeches, in themselves, brought the British people together and made them believe they could stand together and beat the might of the German forces.
This was the highlight of my visit to London. I enjoyed the 2 minutes line , the audio tour was great and easy to follow. The items are well preserved. In general it's a very informative mueseum with lots of attentions to details in re-creation of some of the scenes . Definitely worth the visit.
