Description

The Atlantic Wall Museum Noordwijk is a museum housed in a series of bunkers from the Second World War. Through an exhibition located in a command post bunker and a guided tour (reservation required) through tunnels an idea can be formed about life in bunkers. In addition, one learns how the European coast was transformed into a fortress by the Germans.

There are over 150 photographs to be seen and several artefacts. It is therefore very worthwhile to visit the Atlantikwall Museum.

The exhibition begins with a series of pictures documenting the Atlantikwall from Norway up to the French/Spanish Border. There are photographs of the work of our volunteers on what has been achieved in recent years. There is also a radio room and telephone room decorated. An observation space with a viewing slit can be visited.
