A little bit off the main drag but you are rewarded with an excellent small museum if you make the effort. A chilling insight into life in the city under occupation from 1939. Personal stories, well laid out, clear and very interesting.

Thankfully I googled directions to this museum before leaving home as I am not sure I would have found it otherwise, around 15 minutes walk from Cloth Hall. A small museum set in the old Nazi interrogation building provides an informative display that leaves you...More

This is a very small museum and its not easy to find as its off the tourist trial. It is well worth seeking out, it has some fine history of the War and the role of the Gestapo from 1939 up to the 1950's. They...More
