We did not go into the museum this visit but did go past, its a great pity to see all the rust and lack of paint on the guns along side the road. These exhibits do take all the bad weather from the sea and they are items that cannot be replaced and need a lot of maintenance. Do hope... More

The site of ww1 and ww2 atlantic walls, a fantastic day out and a great insight into what 'the enemy' living conditions and daily routines consisted of.

Visited this museum as part of a classic car tour, and whilst the weather was wet, wouldn't have missed this for the world - fantastic representation and preservation of bunker life. Previous comments covered most of the salient points but some additional views Finding the museum is problematic - signage is poor - key word to look out for is... More

We spent the day on the coast tram. We had left the specific information at home but knew where to get off. A friendly tram driver pointed us in the right direction which wasn't. The locals didn't understand what we wanted but found someone who did. We wandered down a lane way till we found it. It was good. No... More

It was a nice visit and nice place to be. I would recommend the place except forbid you from going to the resturant named UNAMI in Ostende.

Quite a good museum with lots to see and do. A demanding walk for some as there's lots of steps , tunnels and slopes to traverse to explore the bunker complex. There are toilets near the entrance but no cafe or anything like that. The one thing I found strange and a little offensive was the majority of mannequins in... More

Having spent 3 days in Bruges I decided I wanted to explore somewhere else, and hopped on the train to Ostend. There are lockers at Ostend train station where you can leave bags - I paid €4 for a medium locker for the day. I then purchased a day travel ticket for the bus, which you can get from inside...

Spent a half day visiting this amazing place. Everything is very well maintained and really interesting. We were lucky with the weather which was really good on that day. Was instructive and fun at the same time.

An hour of fun and adventure for our young kids. Very instructive for the parents. To be visited on a dry day since almost everything is outside. The wooden path may become very slippery when it rains. Indeed consider the many stairs.
